A Local Direction Sign was a type of direction sign that focused on local nearby destinations, sometimes as secondary information to a previous sign specifying more major directions.
The signs contained information in black text on a white border, with a light blue background, and did normally specify any road numbers, on the assumption that another sign would specify these. They were frequently found in urban areas.
After the post-Guildford Rules changes in 1994, this type of sign became obsolete, but not all have been replaced and many can still be seen. The saving within the TSRGD for their removal expired on 31 December 2014, rendering all blue bordered direction signs remaining after this date as unlawful obstructions.
