MRWA SIGNS CAN NOW BE INSTALLED USING SMART SUSTAINABLE FOUNDATIONS

Our selection is not based on price alone, we also took into consideration the safety & saving aspects. The Smart Sustainable Foundations allow quick replacement of posts with no further effort required to the base, (providing a significant cost benefit in replacing the damaged sign post by re-using the existing footing ) and reduces risk of injury to employees by reducing time spent on traffic islands exposed to traffic.” MAIN ROADS DEPT

 

  • Creating a perfect Finish: Small traffic signs such as Keep Left signs can be installed from as shallow as 150 mm  in solid concrete footpaths and traffic islands/ and 350 - 650 mm Deep in paved areas, creating virtually maintenance-free developments

  • Saving time & Money: Sockets can be installed when pouring foundations and posts simply dropped into position (no digging or heavy labour, no disturbance or waste) and responses to infrastructure failures are fast and efficient.

  • CHS Posts cheaper: Compare pricing today- we supply CHS posts powder coated safety yellow (can be provided with Taper and/or sign attached, ready to install)

CLASSIFICATION AND FUNCTION

In AS1742.1, signs are classified by function into 6 classes.  The Main Roads WA's Index of Signs retains this classification system, except that Guide signs are split into 3 classes as indicated in Table 1.  All Main Roads Signs Index signs have the prefix "MR-" before the letter code denoting the class of sign.
