Warning: from 01/01/2016, your old width signs are no longer valid!

01 December 2015

From 01/10/2013 a transitional period was granted for obtaining the new width signs with the new lettering.  Link to page

This transitional period ended on 01/01/2016! Lots of inspections are expected in connection with this new legislation.

Therefore, it is extremely important to attach the square signs with minimum dimensions of 420x420 mm or 280x280 mm (only for application on abnormal load vehicles with a maximum width of 3.5 m). These must be supplied with alternate red and white diagonal retro reflective strips or the application of rectangular signs with minimum dimensions of 280x280 mm (only for application on abnormal load vehicles with a maximum width of 3.5 m) or 140x800 mm supplied with alternate red and white diagonal retro-reflective strips.
