U-turn signage trial

From 28 March 2019, Council conducted a 12-month trial of new visual U-turn signage at six signalised intersections across Brisbane. The trial signage, which uses clear symbols, aimed to improve compliance and understanding of U-turn road rules.

This trial was a practical way of improving road safety by helping to decrease the number of illegal U-turns at signalised intersections and get you home quicker and safer. This trial also aligned with the safety principle that underpins Council’s Transport Plan for Brisbane – Strategic Directions.

As the trial period has ended, Council is now reviewing the Queensland Police Service web crash data, survey data and community feedback to determine next steps.

The trial signage will remain in place until the review has been completed.
