Yellow box junctions

More information about yellow box junctions in Lewisham.

What are yellow box junctions?

  • These are marked with criss-cross yellow lines on the road usually at a junction of two or more roads.
  • You may enter a yellow box junction when your exit is clear and there is enough space on the other side of the junction for your vehicle to clear the box completely without stopping.
  • You may only stop in a yellow box junction if you are turning right and are prevented from doing so by oncoming traffic or vehicles ahead of you are also turning right
  • Stopping in a yellow box when the exit is not clear may result in a PCN.

Why do we have yellow box junctions?

  • The yellow box junction keeps the junction clear for through traffic to avoid traffic jams and they keep the road space clear for fire engines to exit from fire stations.
