Promote safer driving on local roads with our collection of high-visibility guide signs
Over the years, HIVIS has partnered with Transport for NSW and Destination NSW, ensuring NSW roads are equipped with full-colour, high-visibility signage. From the iconic “Welcome to Sydney” and “Welcome to BSW” signs to all signage across the Sydney Harbour Bridge, HIVIS is the trusted supplier of quality signage for Australian roads.

Understanding guide sign colour coding
The background colour of guide signs is coded to help drivers recognise the messaging easily, even in low-light conditions. For example, white messaging and symbols on a brown background are used for tourist signs and related route markers.
Other categories include:
Black messaging and symbols on a white background are used for general information signs (e.g. “no through road” or flood depth indicators), street signs, and route markers.
White messaging and symbols on a green background are used for intersection and special direction signs, advance exit and directions signs on freeways (e.g. “take left exit to M1 Motorway”) and fingerboards.
White messaging and symbols on a blue background are used for roadside facilities (like rest and camping areas), bicycle and pedestrian route information, and directional signs (e.g. “car park on left”).
Black messaging and symbols on a yellow background are used for exit speed signs and special instructions within certain direction signs (e.g. chevron alignment markers).
- White messaging and symbols on a red background are used to tell drivers they need to stop, reduce their speed significantly, or go back the way they came (e.g. “wrong way” signs).
It’s important to note that each state and territory has their own categorisation system that works within the Austroads Guide to Traffic Management and the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD, i.e. the Australian Standard). We recommend referring to your state’s road safety standards and requirements before making a purchase.
Alternatively, contact the team at HIVIS for professional recommendations and advice.
Guideposts & directional signs
Aside from full-colour, high-visibility signage, we also offer guideposts and directional signs to ensure drivers are aware of sharp turns and boundaries on the road, even in low-light conditions. Our 1350mm Guideposts, for example, are available in flexible steel, steel and plastic materials, all with delineators (or a powder-coated steel option with no delineators).
The NSW Government and Transport for NSW have approved our guideposts and chevron directional signs and use them on NSW roads. Order yours online for nationwide shipping and exceptional service.
