Road markings and signage
There are many different road markings and signage throughout the City of Sunderland such as:
In Sunderland city centre there is a Controlled Parking Zone within the area bound by the signs located on the access routes in to the city centre which inform motorists that they are entering the Controlled Parking Zone.
Tourist signs ('brown signs') are the responsibility of the Highways Agency on trunk roads and the local highway authority on other roads.
Tourist attractions and facilities (for example, hotels, attractions and venues) can apply for direction signs to their location.
If they meet the criteria (which may vary by area) then they pay for the costs of erecting the signs.
If you would like further information please contact the City and neighbourhood team.
