More information

Background information:
The information point for drivers of motorized traffic is characterized by a strip of pavement parallel to the lane, where the driver can briefly leave the car to view the (city) map and other to consult information about the relevant environment. It is not the intention to park or leave the car for other purposes at these locations. These information points are a product of the 1970s, when road traffic increased significantly every year and people traveled further and further outside the area they were familiar with by car. The first navigation systems gradually came onto the market at the end of the 1990s. Various navigation systems have now become indispensable in cars and even on smartphones. However, this does mean that the physical information points along the roads no longer increase in number. The locations in the middle of cities are slowly disappearing, while new ones are sometimes still being constructed, especially at the entrances of industrial estates. The locations where information points are traditionally most common are along main roads (mainly distributor roads) where they cross the municipal boundary. The presence of information points at those locations has remained fairly stable to date.

Structural details:
The material of the information point mainly consists of paving, usually concrete paving stones. There is usually also a modest sidewalk, so that the driver can walk to the information board on the safe side of the car. If the information point is located in the middle of the built-up area, there is also a good chance that the piece of sidewalk is connected to the rest of the sidewalk network in the location in question. This rarely happens outside built-up areas. Although literally every place uses its own type of sign and sometimes there are even several types of signs in 1 municipality, there are also similarities. The sign usually contains a map of the city or the relevant business park, accompanied by a street name register. Advertising messages surrounding the information and sometimes even on the backs of the signs were rare or not existing in the 1970s. In the 1990s there was usually a spot reserved for it and around 2020 it even happens that there are more advertising indications in terms of surface area than map-related information.

Keep color differences between the following elements:

  • Paving incl. gutters and sidewalks: e.g. light gray or gray
  • Curbs: e.g. gray or dark gray
  • Manhole covers: e.g. dark gray or dark brown
