    The purpose of linemarking is to provide visual cues, direction and information for safety, traffic management, and organization. The linemarking process involves the application of lines and markings on various surfaces, such as roads, car parks, and warehouses, using specialized equipment and materials such as paint and thermoplastics. The line marking process typically involves planning, preparation of surfaces, selecting appropriate materials, applying markings using stencils or machines, and post-application quality control and maintenance.

    Line marking refers to creating visible lines, markings, or symbols on a surface with paint or thermoplastic. The design and layout may vary depending on the surface, purpose, and local government regulations.

    Waterborne Road Marking Paint dries extremely quickly compared to regular paint. It can dry within 5-15min on a hot, dry day. In cooler, more humid weather, it will take a little longer, 30min – 1hr, depending on the thickness of the application.

    Car bays are 2.4m wide at a minimum and usually 5.4 in length for an average car. It can be smaller but must be labelled a small car bay. This is according to Australian Standards and specifications. There are no limits to how big a car bay can be, though a width greater than 3.5m is not recommended as drivers will likely try to squeeze two cars into one bay.

    Once you have line marking installed, regular cleaning and remark maintenance is important to maintain the most longevity possible of the markings. This includes regularly cleaning the surface and repainting areas showing signs of wear or fading.

    A shared zone is a yellow hatched bay 2.4m x 5.4m next to a disabled bay. It indicates where needs to be kept clear and provides adequate room to aid disabled people entering and exiting their vehicles or a storefront. It is an Australian standard that every council enforces before approving a new car park or tenancy.

    1. The surface was not prepared properly (Poor Adhesion).

    Because line marking occurs on the ground, it has a habit of collecting dust, water, and rubbish from the surrounding area. If the surface is not cleaned correctly before marking, it can cause the paint to not adhere to the surface properly. This is especially an issue on concrete surfaces but can happen on any dirty surface.

    2. Line marking plant operator error.

    Line marking requires focus, attention to detail and a steady hand. We often see lines that are not straight or are incorrectly positioned.

    At Delineation Line Marking, our motto is to measure twice and cut once. An experienced machinery operator makes all the difference, which is why we have a rigorous training program. All our operators go through hours and hours of supervision and are subject to Verification of Competency before allowing them to operate line marking plant on their own. If an error does occur, we can remove the lines and repaint them correctly, though it doesn’t happen often.

    In Perth, Western Australia, the colours for road markings are standardized based on the national guidelines set by the Australian Standards (AS). These are governed by Main Roads in WA. The most common colours for road markings in Perth are:

    White: Used to mark traffic lanes and parking spaces, and to provide directional information.
    Yellow: Used to indicate no-stopping zones and clearways, and to highlight safety hazards
    Green: Used to indicate bicycle lanes and to mark parking areas for specific vehicle types (Electric Vehicles).
    Blue/Yellow: Used to indicate disabled parking bays and shared zones.

    It’s important to note that road marking colours and their specific applications may vary depending on the location around the State.

    Line markings can be removed using specialized equipment such as grinders or pressure washers. However, it is essential to note that this process can be labour-intensive and may cause damage to the underlying surface.

    Regular maintenance ensures that your line markings remain visible and effective. This can include regular cleaning, repainting, and repairs as needed. Additionally, protective coatings can be applied over the markings to extend their life and protect against wear and tear.

    During the line marking process, it is crucial to take necessary safety measures such as providing proper personal protective equipment, setting up appropriate traffic control and ensuring that the work zone is marked. Also, ensuring that the worker or workers performing the line marking are adequately trained in the use of the equipment and the line marking process, and it is essential to follow safety guidelines and guidelines established by regulatory bodies.

    Line marking guidelines and standards in Western Australia can be challenging to navigate. We recommend contacting a professional line marking service provider to help with your requirements.

    When considering line markings on asphalt surfaces, it’s important to use paint specifically formulated for use on asphalt. These paints are designed to adhere well to the rough and porous surface of the asphalt.

    The longevity you can expect of line markings on asphalt surfaces can range from 1-3 years.

    It’s also essential for you to properly prepare the asphalt surface before applying the markings. This includes cleaning the surface of dirt, dust, oil, and other contaminants. A pressure washer can be used to clean the surface, and it’s essential to ensure that the surface is dry and moisture-free before applying the markings.

    It is important to note that the application method is also crucial. Airless sprayers are the best method for applying line markings as they produce a consistent and even application, but rollers can also be used.


    Once you have line marking installed, regular cleaning and remark maintenance is important to maintain the most longevity possible of the

    markings. This includes regularly cleaning the surface and repainting areas showing signs of wear or fading.

    The longevity of line markings on concrete surfaces in Australia can vary depending on several factors, such as the quality or type of the paint used, the surface preparation, the application method, the weather conditions, the amount of traffic and use, and the regular maintenance performed.

    Proper surface preparation and correct application method can also affect the longevity of the markings. A good surface preparation and following the manufacturer’s instructions for the application will ensure that the paint adheres correctly to the surface and will have a longer lifespan.

    Regular maintenance, such as cleaning the surface, repainting areas showing signs of wear or fading and having a regular inspection schedule, can help extend the markings’ life.

    Areas with heavy traffic and usage tend to experience more wear and tear on the markings and must be repainted more frequently than less-trafficked areas.

    Overall, while it’s difficult to give exact longevity for line markings on concrete surfaces in Australia, with proper preparation, high-quality paint, correct application method, regular maintenance, and taking into consideration the weather conditions and traffic, the markings can last between 2-5 years, with some exceptional cases reaching up to 8 years.
