one of many new road signs that appeared on roads in the New Town of
Edinburgh in 2005 as the Central Edinburgh Traffic Management scheme

Other changes included closing Frederick Street
at its junction with Princes Street, reopening Castle Street at its
junction with Queen Street and measures to restrict the use of George

immediately east of the junction with Hanover Street. The road
markings are to remind car drivers that they have just gone through a
junction where they were not permitted, such as turning left from Hanover
Street into Princes Street.
It is not very apparent that cars are allowed to
travel east along Princes Street in the late evenings and overnight.
