Regulatory and warning signs

Regulatory signs advise of enforceable road restrictions such as:

  • give way
  • stop
  • parking restrictions
  • traffic restrictions

Warning signs warn drivers of potential hazards or approaching traffic conditions such as:

  • pedestrian crossings
  • roundabouts
  • children crossing
  • low bridge ahead

If you would like us to consider installing a new regulatory or warning sign, please submit a request to Council. The Kiama Local Traffic Committee will consider your request and if the case warrants will submit the request to Council for approval.  Only signs approved by Council will be installed.

Speed limit signs

We are responsible for the maintenance of speed limit signs however, the Roads & Maritime Services are responsible for determining the speed limits as well as the sign installation.

Safer Roads NSW accept your comments on speed limit signs and will forward any submissions to us for consideration of those on local roads.

Service signs

We approve applications and install signs that provide directions to tourist attractions or community facilities that can include but are not limited to:

  • historic sites
  • theme parks
  • museums and galleries
  • outdoor attractions
  • public facilities (e.g. phones, emergency services)
  • libraries, pools, sporting facilities
  • accommodation

Tourist signs are generally a brown background with white writing and community signs are generally a blue background with white writing and generic wording/symbols.

If you would like us to consider installing a new tourist or community sign, please submit a request to Council.  The Kiama Local Traffic Committee will consider your request and if the case warrants will submit the request to Council for approval.  Only signs approved by Council will be installed.

Business signs

These are not advertising signs but are generic signs providing direction to a facility or service offered by a business.  Business signs are generally associated with those businesses found in the Service sign section above. The cost associated with installation and maintenance of this sign is the responsibility of the business owner.

If you would like us to consider installing a new business sign, please submit a request to Council.  The Kiama Local Traffic Committee will consider your request and if the case warrants will submit the request to Council for approval.  Only signs approved by Council will be installed.

Street name signs

We are responsible for the installation and maintenance of public road name signs.  We are not responsible for private road name signs, however if you would like us to install a private road name sign at your cost, please submit a written request to Council and we will arrange a quote for your consideration.

If you would like Council to consider installing a new street name sign on a public road, please submit a request to Council.  The Kiama Street & Reserve Naming Committee will consider your request and if the case warrants will submit the request to Council for approval.  Only signs approved by Council will be installed.
