A H-bar road marking, also known as a Driveway Protection Marking, is an advisory road marking which is indicated by a solid white line with short bars on either end.
These road markings are designed to make other motorists aware that there is a driveway or dropped kerb that should not be obstructed.
We can provide H-bars to highlight access to your driveway or dropped kerb for a charge of:
- £65 for one driveway
- £110 for two driveways (agreement is needed from adjoining neighbour(s) for double H-bars)
We cannot install a double length H bar to service a single driveway or dropped kerb. The H-bar will service the exact length of the driveway or dropped kerb.
H-bars are not enforceable, however markings have proven to be generally effective and are respected by most motorists.
How do I apply for a H-Bar?
Apply for a H-bar online
You can apply for a H-bar marking or an extension to an existing H-bar if you have a driveway or dropped kerb outside your home or business.
You can also apply for a H-bar to service two or more driveways, which can include access to your own driveway and your neighbour’s driveway (agreement is needed from the adjoining neighbour for double H-bars).
Once your application and payment has been received, work to install the H-bar will commence in 6-8 weeks.
