'Welcome To Yorkshire' Road Sign

18 May 2011

I recently contacted the Highways Agency to see if there is any possibility of a ‘Welcome to Yorkshire’ road sign being put up on the M1.

I was told that official boundary signs can only be erected to mark the arrival of motorists into a county council area, so Yorkshire is ‘not eligible’.

However a sign may be allowed to mark the ‘legend’ Yorkshire as a place of geographic interest, so hopefully we can get some kind of agreement soon.
