NZ Temporary Warning Signs for Increased Safety
Why do you need to add these displays? Installing the required displays protects the health and safety of everyone, and is required to meet legislation. Motorists are warned of dangers ahead and this, in turn, protects road workers and road users....
In 2018, nearly 400 lives were lost across in New Zealand. Nearly a third of these injuries and deaths involved pedestrians and cyclists. Proper signage helps to reduce these occurrences.
A large, clear display allows people to see warnings before they reach the construction site. When placed by the side of the street or highway, these displays can warn motorists and pedestrians of the speed limit, type of maintenance, or the distance that the road work extends.
Warning Sign Construction Site New Zealand Regulations
The New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) specifies the necessary dimensions, colours, and layouts for safety signs. You are often required to display symbolic signage. The temporary display may indicate:
The type of tradespeople or services
The type of maintenance or road work
Speed limit recommendations
Closure of a lane, street, or highway
The distance until the end of the construction
The types of hazards or road conditions
General warnings for cyclists or pedestrians
The displays need to meet certain specifications. Always review the type of work and assess potential hazards.
