Explanatory Note
The end date of the trials at State highway intersections has been extended to allow a two-year period of evaluation from December 2012, when the trial commenced at the first State highway intersection. The extended period will also allow comparative data to be collected from an additional pair of intersections. The active intersection warning sign and variable speed intersection warning sign will be swapped between the two intersections named in this notice, to assist with the evaluation of the signs.
