star this property answer text <p>Local authorities have a duty to ensure that their traffic signs and road markings comply with the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD) or are otherwise specially authorised by the Secretary of State. To provide consistency for road safety and efficient traffic management, TSRGD specifies that signs used on roads in Great Britain are in English. The Welsh Language Act 1993, however, allows for both Welsh and English to be used on traffic signs placed in Wales and the responsibility for specifying such bilingual signs is a devolved matter.</p><p> </p><p>The UK traffic signing system uses largely symbolic signing for warning and regulatory signs without the use of worded plates to explain the symbols. This means that many signs are fully understandable by drivers even if those drivers do not speak English.</p><p> </p> more like this

This is published on GOV.UK.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>It is however, the responsibility of the individual driver and employer to ensure that they are aware of the specific road traffic requirements in each Member State. The driving test is delivered in accordance with EU requirements and all truck drivers have to undertake an EU prescribed initial qualification to gain a driver CPC and undertake mandatory periodic training to maintain it. One of the requirements of the CPC is that the driver is aware of the regulations relating to the carriage of goods, many of which are uniform across the EU such as drivers’ hours, use of tachographs, seatbelts, operator licensing and relevant papers relating to types of goods carried. Information for specific road traffic signs can be found on GOV.UK</p><p> </p>

We expect the industry to deliver the best possible customer experience every day, including the provision of appropriate toilet facilities.</p><br /><p>Whilst there are no regimes that separately monitor lavatory quality provided on trains by franchised train operators, the Invitation To Tender for the new Greater Anglia franchise is piloting three challenging customer service targets to be monitored through mystery shopper exercises and passenger surveys. One of these Key Performance Indicator (KPI) targets is “presentation of facilities”, which includes questions about “the cleanliness of the toilet facilities” and “the condition of on board toilets” amongst other aspects. Financial penalties will apply if the KPI targets are not met. Various quality of service regimes exist in other Franchise Agreements for monitoring and managing overall train interior quality, some of which carry financial penalties. The National Rail Passenger Survey also reports specifically on “On Train Toilet Facilities” for every operator in its twice yearly survey.</p><br /><p>No sanctions have been imposed specifically in regard to train toilets.</p><br />
