Coloured Traffic Cones
Though we all love the faithful orange traffic cone we now have 3 very lovely new colours, blue and white, green and white and yellow and white, this is due to the highways agency introducing new standards for traffic cones to help increase safety measures around work and construction sites, the different coloured cones each easily indicate a different hazard to both road users and work or construction sites.
Coloured Traffic Cones
Yellow and White Cone
This cone is to indicate that no stopping is allowed – this is essential in areas that have a substantial volume or traffic or fast-moving traffic.
Green and White Cone
The green and white cone is to indicate an access point to another lane. These are mostly used on motorways during times of road works.
