MUTCD Q-series and TC signs

The TC signs are a collection of non-standard traffic control (TC) signs that have been 'officially approved' as required by the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995.

Included in this register are the MUTCD Q-series signs. These signs can be found in Part 1 of the MUTCD and are designed for specific use in Queensland.

The TC signs and Q-series signs are updated quarterly in March, July, September and December. To ensure you are using the most recent signs, it is recommended that you subscribe to receive email alerts when the signs are updated.

A list of amendments is also available to download.
