Give Way at the end of Cross Street


There is a Give Way sign and mini roundabout at the end of Cross Street at its junction with Great Norbury Street and Station Close.

The triangular, red bordered sign with give way written in the centre is a regulatory sign giving an order. The equilateral give way sign is upside down compared to other warning road signs simply as a recognition of shape. So if for instance a give way sign was to become defaced due to snow for example, the shape of the sign alone would be enough to inform a motorist of the impending hazard (a junction) that is ahead.

The upside down white triangle markings on the road represent an additional warning to motorists that there is a give way just ahead.

  2. I hadn't realised about the upside-down triangle warning before. (I am not a driver.) When the picture came up, I was first struck with what a satisfying parking space that is. People must feel very content gliding in there when they come home in the evening.
