Funding for trivia road signs questioned as old signs unused

TRIVIA road signs are set to hit the New England and Cunningham highways in the next few months, but do we really want them?

The signs are part of the $850,000 worth of Community Road Safety grants which have been allocated by Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson.

But chairman of the Warwick and District Road Community Road Safety group Graham Buchner thinks we should take advantage of what we already have.

"Those signs are alright the first time you see them, but after you've driven past a few times you already know the answer," he said.

"We've got a huge electronic sign sitting out near the Eight Mile that sits there blank a lot of the time.

"Why stick signs up that can't be changed when they could be using a sign where the message can be changed."

Mr Buchner said it was disappointing to see a sign worth a significant amount of money wasted.

"There have been roadworks near Aratula, why not put that up and say there will be delays?" he suggested.

"Why can't the sign say 'stop, revive, and survive ahead'?"
