The code[edit]

The Sign Box creates a Routebox style template in the top right of the page giving key information on the UK variant of the sign concerned. Once more information on Irish signs is discovered the following code may be expanded to include more variables.

{{Sign Box
 | name              = 
 | image             = 
 | caption           = 
 | ref               = 
 | from              = 
 | to                = 
 | changes           = 
 | variants          = 
 | lit               = 
 | plates            =
