Pre Worboys

The Pre-Worboys Sign

The Pre-Worboys sign consisted of a hollow red triangle over a white plate with a cross in the upper panel and the legend "CROSS ROADS" in the lower panel.

Worboys report sign

After the Worboys report the sign underwent a change; to place the symbol inside a red triangle.

Its 1964 changes

In 1975, when the TSRGD of that year was released, the sign had a minor alteration. The new sign consisted of a thicker stem with a pointed top, to show who had priority through the junction. (504.1L and 504.1R)

In 2002 variants were made, to show if the other 'arms' had priority.
