Sign at start of A51 in Chester

This sign is on a traffic island at the A5268/A51 junction. As such, the number A51 does not benefit from brackets.

Lane designation signs on approach to A56-A55-M53 junction. - Coppermine - 22280.jpg
Lane designation signs on approach to A56-A55-M53 junction.

These signs and road markings make it very clear which lane traffic on the A56 dual carriageway should use on approach to the roundabout.

There's also a blue bordered sign for Mickle Trafford, although it sadly does not suggest which lane to use.

Blue-bordered sign in Chester

There are a few blue-bordered signs along Sealand Road. This is the only one which tells you which road you are on, though.

Sign on Grosvenor roundabout in Chester - Coppermine - 21695.jpg
Sign on Grosvenor roundabout in Chester

This is one of the newer direction signs at the Grosvenor roundabout in Chester. Some of the other ones identify the road as the A483 and as being a road to Wrexham. Saltney (which is in North Wales) is 2 miles away, Lache a bit closer.

Signs at Overleigh roundabout

An arrangement of signs at an exit on the A483/A5104 junction in Chester. Fortunately, the advanced signs are clearer. The road here actually is Wrexham Road (and part of the primary route to Wrexham at that), but I don't know whether the A549 still formed part of a good route to Mold when 'Conway' stopped being used on road signs.

A51 "roundabout" at the Bars in Chester - Coppermine - 18692.jpeg
Signs at A5268/A51 'roundabout' at the Bars in Chester

Two primary A roads leave the roundabout here, not that you can tell from the picture. The sign for the road on the left reads Nantwich (A51), Whitchurch (A41) (sorry about the light), but is actually the A51.

The road in the centre of the picture is the A5268, leading to the Pepper Street car park and the road to Wrexham beyond it.

This is an 'All through traffic' sign on the junction between two primary routes. Perhaps not for much longer, though.

Typical street sign in Chester.

Typical street sign in Chester, to contrast with the one opposite. It happens to be at the pre-ring road end of the A56.

The A5268 Pepper Street passes under The Newgate between a gap in the City Wall. In 1938 The Newgate replaced a gateway in the City Wall, to give greater width and headroom on a heavily trafficked street. Less than two decades after being built, The Newgate was Grade II listed in 1955.
