Gateway signs for regional communities

Does anyone have any examples of creative, quirky localised gateway signs promoting the reduction of speed when entering a regional community, that they would be happy to share?

Interested in anything developed by community groups or government. I'd like to be able to show some examples to community based stakeholders.

Hi Beck

Please get in touch with me via email (Robert.Swears@wsp.com). I will send you some photos of speed limit gateways for rural communities along the shores of Lake Taupo in New Zealand. We used the logo of the District Council in conjunction with the gateway signs. The gateway idea was adopted around the District and provides a consistent theme for the speed limit gateways into the various communities.

Dear Beck

I don't really have anything readily available in terms of community developed specifically I'm aware of, some examples on the links below may offer inspiration:

Hi Beck

Here's a new gateway sign being used in Victoria. Note that it is not a speed sign as classified by our road rules!
