Motorists told to read the signs

Mon, 14 Jan 2019

A popular mobile app designed to help motorists plan their journey around the Island has been upgraded.

The Read The Signs mobile phone app includes a number of new features, including a fresh new look and improved graphics.

Launched in 2014, the app has been downloaded thousands of times and allows both Apple and Android users to check what is being shown on the Matrix electronic traffic information signs around the Island.

The signs display important messages for road users such as weather warnings and temporary or emergency road closures. They are updated 24 hours a day and the information on the app is refreshed every five minutes.

One of the key improvements will offer the opportunity to receive notifications when the message on a specific sign is changed. The new version will also allow a user to prioritise a list of their favourite signs rather than viewing the full list.

The app should update automatically for existing users. New users can download the app at Apple’s iTunes store or the Google Play store.
