Where is yellow road line marking used in Australia?
There are a number of situations where yellow line marking is used instead of white, these are:
- To denote no stopping at a locations (along kerb or edge of the road) ((Road Rule 169))
- To reinforce not to stop in an intersection or where rail tracks cross a road (yellow box marking)
- In snow areas where white lines may not contrast
- In some roadworks areas where the yellow aims to lessen the blacking out/scrubbing out of white by informing drivers to follow the yellow lines
- To indicate a temporary treatment
- A tram safety zone, tramway or tram lane
Yellow is also used as the colour of a shared path crossing a road and is also sometimes used to highlight a pedestrian’s crossing area at a signalised intersection or pedestrian crossing.
