You will need to liaise with a contractor to design and install the signs.
5 Design and installation
The County Council is not able to provide a design and installation service. You will be required to commission a company to design a sign proposal that is compliant with the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2016 and Chapter 7 Traffic Signs Manual 2013.
The contractor will require £10 million public liability insurance and appropriate New Roads and Street Works 1991 accreditation in order to install the equipment on the highway.
