That's a bit garish . . .

Do you have a different colour for roadworks marking in the UK? I'm pretty sure that they didn't the last time I drove there a few years ago.

No, but yellowish/green cats eyes are often put along the temporary markings.

Finland also uses yellow to separate traffic on simple 2-lane roads:


But not on motorways:

Yellow is temporary here,it overrides white as long as its present...though on some old roads,there are yellow markings.

Does this mean that both Italy and Hungary used yellow side markings in the past?

Yugoslavia had them too - they can still be seen on the M-1 in Macedonia, although not consistently as they are mixed with white lines - quite messy actually.

As far as I understood from http://members.a1.net/wabweb/, Austria had yellow markings too, but in the middle of the road, I think - even on motorways apparently:

No, I do not think we in Hungary ever used yellow markings as permanent signs. (Except for the exceptions. )

Single Yellow Line- Not parking when signs say you can't.

Double Yellow Line- No parking at any time.

Single Red Line- No stopping when signs say you can't.

Double Red Line- No stopping at at any time.

Portugal: Yellow during construction and on the side of the road in mountains.

that's true - Yugoslavia had them. and nopt only at motorways, but on normal roads, too. also, ex-yugoslav countries had them untill the beginning of 2000's. here is a photo from Croatia, it's first section of A1 after 1970's built in 2000 and it still has yellow markings (thus it's the only part of A1 that had yellow markings (instead of 1970's section)). notice the new style of those reflection posts beside the road - they came together with white markings, that means that those yellow lines were soon replaced with white



this is A4 near Sveta Helena from yellow times

I dont think so...maybe they run out of white when the road was built,and painted the sides with yellow...I've never seen yellow on really old roads. This was probably reconstructed when the railroad nearby was electrified(because there's an overpass on this road that doesnt look that old),and they used this...this is only a few kms long section,then it becomes white again.

Actually, yellow is only used in Finland when the centre line is solid (for no passing rules). Other times, it's white.

In portugal yelow lines denote "temporary" markings (used indescriminatedly as center lines or shoulders) or are used on shouders to denote "parking prohibited".

Anyone who knows the purpose of the yellow edge markings (for instance in F Yugoslavia or Italy)? We (Norway) use yellow for separating two way traffic, but for what I understand at least Yugoslavia used yellow on all types of roads.

Yellow line in former Yugoslavia (and I think in Italy too) was drawn as being a limit of drivable surface of road, white marked other traffic lines, including drive directions limitations. As I understand, in Austria (and I think in Switzerland too) it was opposite: white marked drivable surface limits and yellow color other traffic lines.

As I know, roads in 60ies and 70ies were much more colorful in Europe that they are today. Now more common markings are in use.

It seems Isreal and Ireland's road markings are exactly the same. They also have the yellow dotted hard shoulder for dual carriageways. We also use a yellow border on the sides of normal country roads.

Italy seemed to have changed for some reason - maybe to bring some consistency to road markings on the continent?

In France, yellow is generally used for permanent marking or for prohibited parking or delivery area
