Road signs and markings
The county council maintains all road signs and markings in Lincolnshire.
We routinely inspect them for a variety of faults but we rely on the public to report them too.
- Damaged signs causing an obstruction or safety issue will be assessed quickly and made safe.
- Missing or damaged Give Way, One Way, Stop and No Entry signs will be fixed within 28 days.
- Other missing or damaged signs will be added to a planned programme of works and, in some cases, may not be replaced.
- Deteriorating Stop and Give Way lines will be replaced within 28 days.
- Other road markings will be replaced as part of a planned programme of works.
To request new signs or markings, email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Signs and Lines Team, Lincolnshire County Council, Crown House, Grantham Street, Lincoln, LN2 1BD.
Include as much detail possible as requests will be assessed in accordance with national regulations and local policy. Depending on the type of sign requested, the applicant may have to meet all costs.
To find out what all highways signs and markings mean, search the Highway Code manual.
All costs for the provision of brown tourism signs are paid for by the attraction/facility.
