Some roads in Aotearoa have one-lane bridges on them. At these bridges, vehicles travelling in one direction have to give way to vehicles going in the other direction. All one-lane bridges are clearly signposted, showing who should give way.
If you have to give way at a one-lane bridge, you should see one or both of these warning signs.
The yellow diamond-shaped warning sign tells you you’re coming up to a one-lane bridge and the round sign with a red border tells you to give way to vehicles coming towards you.
