Traffic Signs Manual (TSM) Chapter 8 Part 3 has now been published

  • Tuesday February 28, 2017

The Traffic Signs Manual (TSM) Chapter 8 Part 3 has now been published.

The document provides information on changes to the methods used to prescribe traffic signs in the 2016 Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions. In most cases, the same signs will be used in the same situations as shown in TSM Chapter 8 Parts 1 and 2 (2009).

This part provides a reference on where the requirements for individual signs in the TSRGD and design information can be found. It also introduces new options for lane control ‘wicket’ signs and guidance on how these new options should be applied to different types of schemes.

While this part does not replace the design of temporary traffic management arrangements it does provide updates on relaxation schemes and on selecting safe methods of installing signs and other equipment.

This document is available on the page at this link https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/traffic-signs-manual
