A SIGN improvement drive in the south of St Albans to make it easier to navigate around the city gets underway from Monday.
Herts Highways will be refurbishing or replacing signs as necessary to ensure that routes and destinations - including industrial areas - are correctly signed and clear to follow.
It is part of a scheme carried out in partnership with St Albans district council and other local organisations, the first stage of which was implemented last year with the introduction of signs indicating availability on car parks.
Executive member for highways and transport at the county council, Cllr Stuart Pile, said: "The changes to the signs will be a gradual process but we hope that residents and road users will notice a difference by April.
"The scheme, along with the car park signage that is already in place, aims to direct drivers clearly and easily to key destinations, reduce street clutter and provide a uniform style.
"St Albans is a congested and busy city and an important part of keeping traffic moving is ensuring that road users can easily find their way around."

Signs located within the conservation area will be finished with grey posts and sign backs in line with current guidelines and in consultation with the district council's conservation section.
