Street signage, lighting and furniture

Council recently replaced the bridge on Cemetry Road in Newstead.

Street signage

Street signage facilitates ease of navigation, parking and safe passage for vehicles and pedestrians throughout our shire. Examples of street signage include street signs, tourist and service signs, warning signs as well as guide posts, guard rails and bollards.

In general, Council is responsible for installing, replacing and maintaining street signage with the exception of those on VicRoads managed arterial roads.

Businesses looking to have directional signage installed on arterial roads need to meet eligibility criteria set out by VicRoads. Read the Tourist Signing Guidelines on the VicRoads website.

If you desire to have new signage installed on a local road lodge a service request or contact us.
