Sponsoring a roundabout

The sponsorship of roundabouts is managed on our behalf by Community Partners. The contract terms are between one and three years, and prices vary depending on location and traffic flow.

Some of the roundabouts have up to five signs on it. You can have a different piece of artwork on each one, to promote different marketing messages.

Google Maps: Sponsoring a Roundabout shows you all the roundabouts that are available to sponsor (blue and yellow dots only).
