Red Route Signs and Lines
Double Red Lines and Signs
These signs and lines mean Stopping is not permitted at any time. Double red lines are seen only at important locations, bus stops or where parking and loading would be dangerous or cause serious congestion.
Single Red Lines and Signs
These signs and lines mean that parking, loading or picking up passengers is not permitted during the working day. The controls generally apply from 7am to 7pm. Stopping is permitted outside these hours.
Stopping: Red Boxes
Red boxes marked on the road indicate that parking or loading is permitted during the off peak time, normally between 10am and 4pm (this may vary depending on individual locations). There are several different types of box. Some allow loading and unloading. Others allow short term free parking. Special conditions apply to Orange and Blue Badge Holders. The rules in each case are clearly shown on a sign beside the box.
Stopping: White Boxes
White boxes marked on the road indicate that parking or loading is allowed at any time of day. Times and conditions are clearly indicated on the signs displayed next to the box.
