1. INTRODUCTION
1.1. Traffic signs, which have the backing of law in India, arc incorporated Indian Motor Vehicles Act, 1988. in Section 116 ofthe

1.2. The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 has covered all the signs warranted by different traffic situations and the designs of signs fully dimensioned. Further the signs have the uniformity, and mostly symbols are used to convey the message, especially in the case of regulatory signs.
c

road signs (IRC:67-1977) have been reviewed by the Traffic Engineering Committee of the Indian Roads Congress in the light of recommendations made by various international conventions, with a view to evolving a uniform and an efficient system of road signs suiting the present as well as future traffic. This Code of Practice sets out the methodology to be followed in the use, siting, construction and maintenance of the road signs for all categories of roads excepting for expressways, for which higher standards are required. The traffic signs adopted in this code are as proposed in Protocol on Road Signs and Signals of United Nations Conference on Road and Motor Transport, 1949 and Geneva Convention on Road Signs and Signals, 1968.

1.3. The existing

1.4. The draft revision of the Code of Practice prepared by Dr. T.S. Reddy was considered by
the Traffic Engineering Committee (personnel given below) in their meeting held on the 22nd October, 1998 and it authorised the Convenor and Dr. T.S. Reddy to finalise the same and send to IRC for consideration by Highways Specifications and Standards Committee. Ninnal Jit Singh S.K. Marwah Convenor Member-Secretary

The Highways Specifications & Standards Committee approved the draft in its meeting held on 21 Sl December. 1999. Subsequently the draft was approved by Executive Committee on 10'h February, 2000 and Council in its 159,h meeting held at Pune on 26'h May, 2000.

IRC:67-200J

3.6. On multi-lane high speed roads, the signs may have to be mounted overhead. as this would ensure better visibility and he effective in communicating with the drivers. For guidelines on location, design and installation of overhead signs, reference may be made to MOST Specifications for Road and Bridge works (Section 802). The overhead signs shall be mounted to ensure better visibility and effective in communicating the drivers in the following cases: ./ Traffic volume at or near capacity ./ Complex interchange design

./ Three or more lanes in each direction ./ ./ ./ Restricted sight distance High speed traffic Insufficient space for ground mounted signs

Overhead signs shall provide a vertical clearance of not less than 5.5 metres over the entire width of pavement and shoulders except where a lesser vertical clearance is used for the design of other structures. 4. ORIENTATION OF THE SIGNS

4.1. The signs shall normally be placed at right angles to the line of travel of the approaching traffic. Signs relating to parking, however, should be fixed at an angle (approximately) 15 degrees to the carriageway so as to give better visibility. 4.2. Where light reflection from the sign face is encountered to such an extent as to reduce legibility, the sign should be turned slightly away from the road. On horizontal curves, the sign should not be fixed normal to the carriageway but the angle of placement should be determined with regard to the course of the approaching traffic. 4.3. Sign faces are normally vertical, but on gradients it may be desirable to tilt a sign forward or backward from the vertical to make it normal to the. line of sight and improve the viewing angle. 5. MATERIAL FOR SIGNS

The various materials and fabrication of traffic signs shall conform to the following requirements: 5.1. Concrete: Concrete shall be of M 1SO grade (mix 1:2:4). 5.2. Reinforcing otherwise specified. Steel: Reinforcing steel shall conform to the requirements of IS: 1786 unless to IS: 1367 whereas precision

5.3. Bolts, Nuts, Washers: High strength bolts shall conform bolts, nuts, etc. shall conform to IS: 1364. 5.4. Plates and Supports: Plates and support sections IS:226 and IS:2062 or any other stated IS specification.
