Illustration #2300

Some motorway signs. The top part of this diagram illustrates the gantry which displays the signs, which in this case are showing speed restrictions and an imminent lane closure on a three-lane carriageway. The central part of the drawing shows how the various restrictions are accompanied by flashing lights. The lower part shows other signs that you may come across on the motorway, displaying, left to right: temporary speed limit, lane 3 closed ahead, and the 'clearway' sign, which is not accompanied by flashing lights, to show that the temporary restrictions have finished.
