Keeping Standards up-to-date


Australian Standards are living documents that reflect progress in science, technology and systems. To maintain their currency, all Standards are periodically reviewed, and new editions are published. Between editions, amendments may be issued. Standards may also be withdrawn. It is important that readers assure themselves they are using a current Standard, which should include any amendments that may have been published since the Standard was published. Detailed information about Australian Standards, drafts, amendments and new projects can be found by visiting www.standards.org.au Standards Australia welcomes suggestions for improvements, and encourages readers to notify us immediately of any apparent inaccuracies or ambiguities.

PREFACE

It is one in a series of fourteen standards which together form the Manual of uniform traffic control devices.

Principal variations from the 1989 edition are as follows: Deletion of detail on the layout of on-street parking areas and spaces. This is now covered in AS 2890.5, Parking facilities, Part 5: On-street parking. Deletion of detail on sign coding for ordering purposes. A survey revealed that this was not being used. Expansion of detail relating to the signposting and marking of clearways, the marking of parking spaces for the disabled, and the provision of direction signs to parking areas. Inclusion of signs indicating tow-away areas. A change in the shape of the arrowhead on linear parking control signs to improve legibility.

The terms normative and informative have been used in this Standard to define the application of the appendix to which they apply. A normative appendix is an integral part of a Standard, whereas an informative appendix is only for information and guidance.
