The DfT launched a traffic signs policy review in September 2008. Its objective is to develop a traffic sign system that will meet the changing needs of road users and provide effective tools for the better management of the road network, incorporating new technologies and minimising the impact on the environment.


Alan Baxter was asked by English Heritage and the Department for Transport to investigate practical mechanisms, ideally using existing regulatory processes, for reducing the visual intrusion of traffic signs.
