Latest road signs with Transport typeface (2015)

Road signs in Hong Kong are standardised road signs similar to those used in other nations but with certain distinctions. Like Singapore, road signs in Hong Kong closely follow those used in the United Kingdom. Signs usually use the Transport Medium typeface also used in the United Kingdom, Though some signs on recently completed expressways use Transport Heavy. Road signs created in 2010s often irregularly use Arial Narrow or Helvetica with or without a modified 'l', where on older signs and the newest signs, Transport Medium is used. Signs showing street names are usually done in Helvetica but the newest design returns to Transport Medium.

Hong Kong's traffic signs use English and Traditional Chinese, the official languages in Hong Kong.
