Bus Lane Road Markings

Bus Lane Road Markings


There are strict guidelines and rules covering the signage and lineage which must be in place. It is illegal for an authority to enforce a Bus Lane which is not correctly signed and adjudicators often uphold appeals where the signs and roadmarkings are not correct or where they are faded. 

Amazingly many bus lanes are not correctly signed and are therefore unenforceable but the local authorities just carry on enforcing them. By understanding the signs and lines which must be in place you may well be able to have your penalty charge notice cancelled. The required location of the road markings that must be in place are set out below.


Below: Figure 17-1 This useful diagram by the department of transport shows both the road markings and signs that must be in place in order for a bus lane to be enforceable. The respective signs mentioned are shown above.
