Yellow arrows on the road

Postby KateD » Fri Apr 28, 2017 12:01 pm

Ok guys, I've noticed yellow arrows on the road before but several have just appeared on the road through our village of Paidohori. Some 'appear' to be directional as they appear at junctions and point ahead but one just points to the grass verge on the Pemonia to Paidohori road!!! :P

Round us, they're for cycle races, showing the cyclists which way to go at junctions. Towards the end of the race, the distance to the line is put on the road too.

Or around here someone was giving a big party a few years ago ... and the directions to his house were marked on the road in red paint for miles around ...

Probably a good job they are not coming to Sitia. We have had yellow arrows on the road and they have dug a 100 mm trench where they were. I suppose that this would have kept the cyclists 'on track and stopped them wandering all over the road!

Saw white arrows today. They have very long tails. I got to a junction and there were arrows pointing both ways.
