Road sign, wood, rectangular in shape with rounded corners. The background was painted white originally, but this has faded. There is a black border around the sign 13 mm wide. The sign is divided into 2 sections. The top section comprises two-thirds of the area of the board. The top image is a cross as in the letter X. The bottom third of the sign reads: CROSS ROADS. The image and letters have been stencilled on with a black bitumen based paint. There is a 10 mm diameter hole through the board 30 mm from the top centre of the sign. A second hole is 90 mm from the bottom centre of the board. A stripe 80 mm wide on the back of the sign runs from the top to the bottom of the board. This area of discolouration was where the sign was bolted to a post. There are faint signs of white paint on the back of the board on either side of the centre stripe.
