FOREWORD

This Manual is issued by VicRoads to provide guidance in establishing a


standardised system of signs, pavement markings and associated devices on
declared freeways and arterial roads throughout Victoria.
In the interests of uniformity, Councils are invited to apply the requirements of
this Manual to municipal roads.
A standardised system is essential to ensure that drivers acquire the information
necessary to enable them to comply with road rules, and to navigate their way
around the road system in a safe and efficient manner.
This Manual is to be used as the primary reference for road signs, markings
and delineation in Victoria. As far as practicable, the principles and practices of
the Australian Standard Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD),
AS 1742, have been incorporated in this Manual. However, the Manual varies
from the Australian Standard in the following ways:
The inclusion of additional signs and devices, and variation in the design of
some standard signs and devices to suit Victorian conditions. These signs
have the letter V inserted into their serial number.
Amplification of the guides for the use of many of the signs and devices,
and the inclusion of special administrative requirements where necessary.
Closer definition of device requirements where the Australian Standard
permits discretionary options.
The omission of any signs and devices, which are not appropriate to Victorian
conditions.
Further information relating to the use of Major Traffic Control Devices and
delegations to Councils is provided in VicRoads Traffic Engineering Manual,
Volume 1 Traffic Management.
This Manual does not provide guidance on temporary signing, markings and
delineation, or traffic control. This information is available in the Worksite
Safety - Traffic Management Code of Practice. This Code adopts the MUTCD,
AS1742.3, Traffic Control Devices for Works on Roads, as its core.
Enquiries relating to the Manual may be directed to VicRoads Road
and Traffic Standards Section on telephone number 9854 2341 or via
e-mail: tem@roads.vic.gov.au
