Sat nav notices a sign of the times

Drivers on Oxfordshire County Council roads may soon notice a new sign when they encounter roadworks.

The county council will soon be using a new advisory sign telling drivers to follow diversion signs rather than their satellite navigation systems.

Sat navs, while great when all roads are open, don’t always cope well when encountering a temporary road closure. When planned maintenance works require a diversion, suitable alternative route signs are installed to give motorists clear directions to minimise inconvenience.

The sign will be used on the forthcoming Combined Safety Schemes maintenance programme which will see work being done over nine locations covering both rural and urban environments. See below for more information on where and when work will take place.
