About Expressway

About the author and the site:

Expressway was started on May 5, 2002 by Paul Rands.

The site is a hobby, from an interest in road-related things since childhood. The site was inspired by Bradley Torr's, Sam Laybutt's and Lachlan Sim's highway sites. It was also inspired by the lack of Australian sites available at the time.

These days there are plenty of Aussie Road sites, official and unofficial.

The Australian Road Sign Graphics section is designed to be a vault of current and past standard road signs. The images are reproductions based on old traffic sign catalogues, user handbooks and official Manual of Uniform Traffic Devices. Signs are also reproduced from photographs and from memory.
