Ozroads: PHOTO OF THE WEEK
Welcome to 'Photo of the week'! This page was started on Wednesday, 17 January 2007 as a way of getting some of the contributors' pics up online before I actually have the chance to update some of the pages. Hopefully it will not become an alternative to regularly updating the site, which I hope to keep doing.
If you want to see your photo here or elsewhere on the site - please email me. This page will be updated every Wednesday (I hope).
Is this concept a good idea or is it a waste of time? Tell me what you think - email me!
UPDATE: Well, the concept of Photo of the Week hasn't quite worked. I'm still pondering what to do with it but in the meantime, here's a new photo!
Photo of the week for 14 April 2019
In February 2019 a new set of Intersection Direction signs appeared at the intersection of Pacific Highway & Pennant Hills Road at Pearce's Corner, showing Pacific Highway towards Pymble as 'A11'. Many have been wondering what the route numbering might look like once NorthConnex opens to traffic - would it be signed as part of M7? If these signs are not errors, they indicate that perhaps M1 will be signed via NorthConnex and the M2/Lane Cove Tunnel, with the existing A1 route renumbered A11.

|12 July 2011||These signs at the Southern Cross Drive/Wentworth Avenue interchange in Eastlakes, NSW, date from the opening of the Southern Cross Drive extension in 1989. In 1992 the SR64 shield was coverplated with a Metroad 1 shield, however, the coverplate has recently come off exposing the SR64 route shield. Contributed by: Dean Jones.|

|29 November 2012||One of the many facepalms on our road network - National Route 127, of course, does not exist. The sign designer obviously doesn't know the difference between route numbering and legal classification. Veras Leap Road, 3km west of Wee Waa. Contributed by: Peter Renshaw.

|With the imminent introduction of alpha-numeric route numbering, Roderick Breis spotted this sign which incorrectly shows Metroad 1 to the left rather than the right. RMS have advised that they will replace it with a correct sign as part of the alpha-numeric rollout. Contributed by: Roderick Breis. Photo taken: April 2013.|

This unusual direction sign is located at the junction of Forest Reef Road & Carcoar Road, 5km west of Millthorpe. The "500+" appears to refer to property numbers along Forest Reef Road.
