    Might be an idea instead of having poxy small signs with 50 limit on them , to put the speed limit on the road where your supposed to be looking.
    Have the 50 every 100 yards on those roads .

    What works are these?
    They must be substantial if the speed limit is being formally reduced.

    The 50 signs are an absolute joke. The size of stamps on a pole.

    The speed limit will be reduced to 50km/hr to allow for road improvement works which get underway next week on August 12 and are expected to take 12 months to complete.
    Title amended that this is a temporary thing during roadworks.

    bobbyss point is fair - can anybody outline the NRA (now TII) rationale for such small signs in the first place?

    It's a normal sized sign when you enter the limit zone, then reminder signs are smaller sized.
