Many preventable accidents occur within the safety of a townhouse complex. These accidents are mostly caused by inconsiderate driving behaviour and motorists who drive at inappropriate speeds around corners.
We would like to share some info about the standards for road markings within a townhouse complex.
I need to paint the Road Marking “inside” a Townhouse Complex and would like to keep it uniform so I am just trying to find out where I could get the dimensions for the Road Markings.
If you could please help.
Reg 286 gives you certain provisions but everything else is in the SADC Road Signs manual Volume 4. It is an expensive document but most traffic and roads departments have a copy
(2) (a) The minimum width of a longitudinal road marking shall be 100 millimetres: Provided that a tolerance of 10 percent below such minimum dimension shall be permissible.
(b) The minimum length of a continuous longitudinal road marking shall be nine metres on a public road in an urban area and 12 metres on any other public road: Provided that this provision shall not apply to such marking used to mark the edge of a painted island.
(c) The minimum width of a transverse road marking shall be—
(i) for road marking RTM1 in an urban area, 300 millimetres and in any other area 500 millimetres;
(ii) for road marking RTM2 in an urban area, 200 millimetres and in any other area 300 millimetres;
(iii) for road marking RTM4, 2 400 millimetres;
