Bilingual signage

Iomair Sligeach, Steòrnabhagh / Shell Street, Stornoway. Not only is the English too small to read but the use of brackets is completely incorrect!

A87-A863 Sligachan - Coppermine - 2565.jpg
A87-A863 Junction at Sligachan

The new bridge carrying the A87 over the Sligachan.. Note the new style Scottish sign with Gaelic & Eng text. These signs are completely different to those used in Wales-which makes no differentiation by colour & Ireland which puts Gaelic in an old style font..

Note,lots of money is being spent by replacing all signs with bilingual ones now, rather than waiting until they reach the end of their life. And that sometimes primary destinations are gold on green, and other times patched green on white!!

Welcome to Wales - Croeso I Gymru - Coppermine - 13479.JPG
Welcome to Wales - Croeso i Gymru

Here on the A5 crossing into Wales. This crossing is certainly less spectacular than the M4 Severn Crossings.

Advisory "no motor vehicles" sign. - Coppermine - 23787.jpeg
Advisory 'no motor vehicles' sign.

A sign on one of the lanes leading from the A541 (I don't remember where exactly, although it could be the first one west of Bodfari). Perhaps this is what you do when you really don't want people driving up there but can't ban them altogether...

Stornoway direction sign

On the Western Isles anything goes - brackets around destinations as well as the road numbers (but not for the first 2 destinations for some reason), and don't get me started on the size of the English text!

M8 Cullahill-Cashel Terminus Signage - Coppermine - 20798.jpg
M8 Cullahill-Cashel Terminus Signage

Please give credit to Furet on Boards.ie for this great picture. This shows the signage at the terminus of the M8 at Cullahill. Traffic converges and leaves the motorway through a rather odd slip-road to the right. Notice the old 'N8' is referred to as the R639 now (as all sections of the N8 that are replaced with M8 become R639). Also, once again we have ugly motorway patching, but it's a terminal junction so no worries.

French & English Level Crossing Sign.jpg
The English 'STOP when lights show' sign pictured above the French variant at the level crossing on the West side of Dollands Moor Freight Yard. The other signs leading up to the AHBC are all in English (with the overhead line safe height surprisingly only in Imperial units). This is probably the only sign like this in the UK and reads for the benefit of the French Eurotunnel workers: 'Arret obligatoire si les feux clignotants Sont en action'. A bit less straight forward than the English version.
