Road Signs


Tram signs, signals and road markings

Trams can run on roads used by other vehicles and pedestrians. The part of the road used by trams (the "swept path") may have a different colour or textured surface to the rest of the road, or it may be edged with special road markings. Keep the "swept path" clear. Trams cannot move out of the way of other road users!

Route for trams only (and buses where the upper sign also includes the bus symbol)
Indication of a tram-only route at a junction ahead
