Diagram 622.8 is one of the more uncommon road signs to be found in the UK. Often placed at the entrance of long tunnels where the vehicles can then be advised of another route or escorted through the tunnel. The no explosives sign is also used in areas where explosives are regularly transported and to stop the movement of these goods through heavily built up areas. It can also be used in areas that pass by businesses that regularly work with explosive materials.
Material: R2/RA2 reflective overlay on aluminium composite backing
5.9.1. The sign to diagram 622.8 (S3‑2‑16, see Figure 5‑19) should be used to give effect to an order that prohibits vehicles carrying explosives from using a length of road. This might be used where the danger from such vehicles is likely to be greater or perhaps in urban or residential areas close to premises where explosives are manufactured. The need for the signs, other than at tunnels, is likely to be in areas known to have regular movement of explosives or inflammable materials. Schedule 3 General Direction 3 requires that the sign is always used with a supplementary plate; the appropriate legend is “No explosives” or “No inflammables or explosives” (S3‑3‑16). If appropriate, a second plate may be added, with legends specified in S3‑3‑8 (time period) and S3‑8‑15 (exceptions)..
