    What was the blacked-out word on the other road sign?

    Bowlie.

    I don't know.
    While English is the main language.[I could be wrong].They also speak Tok Pisin.
    IE:I need your help.
    Mi nidim halivim bilong yu. (mee nee-dim hah-lee-vim bee-long yoo)

    It may well cloud there English.

    Or who ever made the sign could not spell.

    Batcher

    Just a black rectangle.

    Hi John

    They do the same here, it probably said 500 yards (or maybe they use the foreign measurements 457 ish metres) and then use tape or a magnetic 'patch' to obscure as required.
    Cheers

    Asking the questions everbody wants the answers too but feels too stupid to ask themselves :-)

    In my expert opinion, that's most likely a right turn sign for foreign made cars that can only be driven on the wrong side of the road.

    Bizarrely,
    "Turn" is centre-justified, but
    "Right" is left-justified.

    It's obviously an Australian sign and written phonetically - but the question mark immediately after "Right" is missing.

    Or it is a older sign from another project, and the blacked out area did NOT apply to this project.
    To cheap to have a new correct one made.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
