B.C.'s Transportation Minister says the province will consider changes to highway signs erected through Coquitlam.

The announcement comes after Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart raised concerns the signs in his city don’t actually feature the city’s name.

Stewart added there aren’t any signs directing drivers to Lougheed Highway or the Mary Hill Bypass, but instead the signs point to Highway 7 or Highway 7B, and alternate between south and east.

Stewart says the signs are frustrating for non-locals.

"People don't use those numbers, they use the names,” he said.

“And if they are driving down the highway, and suddenly they see the number 7 something, they end up in Surrey.”

Transportation Minister Mary Polak told Rick Cluff with CBC Radio One’s The Early Edition changes could be made.

“When you construct your signs and you put the wording on them, you are trying to not only provide information for a local audience, you are also trying to provide for people who are travelling, looking at a map, looking for a route,” she said.

“So it's a balance. Our staff tried very hard to get it right. But when we don't get it right, we want to hear about it and we always try to fix that.”

Stewart wants the province to post both the highway number and name on the signs to minimize confusion.

  • Trollstigen; Rauma, Norway

    This gives the term "long and winding road" new meaning. It took eight years to complete this road which has a 9 percent incline and 11 super-tight turns. If you want to see it, you'll have to wait until spring when it re-opens to traffic. <a href="http://www.trippy.com/friends/4eb96c1ee4b0c0ec367ca006/Ridiculously_Crazy_Roads.html">See all Ridiculously Crazy Roads on Trippy.</a> Photo credit: Fil Bohac

  • Hindustan-Tibet Highway; Himachal Pradesh, India

    As if this road weren’t dangerous enough, when an entrance point was closed earlier this year, some area residents, for whom this road is vital, drove on the wrong side of the road to avoid a longer route. <a href="http://www.trippy.com/friends/4eb96c1ee4b0c0ec367ca006/Ridiculously_Crazy_Roads.html">See all Ridiculously Crazy Roads on Trippy.</a> Photo credit: Chris Pearson

  • Passo dello Stelvio; Bormio, Italy

    With no less than 60 hairpin turns, this is not recommended for people who get easily car sick.

  • Chacaltaya; La Paz, Bolivia

    If you’ve ever doubted global warming, consider this: the glacier on this mountain, which was thought to be about 18,000 years old and was one of the highest glaciers in South America, is now completely gone. <a href="http://www.trippy.com/friends/4eb96c1ee4b0c0ec367ca006/Ridiculously_Crazy_Roads.html">See all Ridiculously Crazy Roads on Trippy.</a> Photo credit: Pikes on Bikes

  • Taroko Gorge; Hualien County, Taiwan

    If it looks like this road has been carved right out of the mountain, that’s because it has. While scary and certainly dangerous, it lives up to the name “Taroko,” which means “magnificent and splendid” in the language of a local tribe. <a href="http://www.trippy.com/friends/4eb96c1ee4b0c0ec367ca006/Ridiculously_Crazy_Roads.html">See all Ridiculously Crazy Roads on Trippy.</a> Photo credit: Matthew Hine

  • Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road; Al Ain, United Arab Emirates

    Looking a bit like a Hot Wheels track, this desert stretch is considered by many to be the world’s best driving road. That said, it’s not just drivers who love it; it’s a very popular training spot for elite cyclists as well. <a href="http://www.trippy.com/friends/4eb96c1ee4b0c0ec367ca006/Ridiculously_Crazy_Roads.html">See all Ridiculously Crazy Roads on Trippy.</a> Photo credit: Arki97

  • Lombard Street; San Francisco, California

    Used in countless movies and television shows, the curves on Lombard were designed in 1922 when the hill's incline proved too severe for most cars. Don't plan on testing your car's handling on this one, though; the speed limit here is only five m.p.h. <a href="http://www.trippy.com/friends/4eb96c1ee4b0c0ec367ca006/Ridiculously_Crazy_Roads.html">See all Ridiculously Crazy Roads on Trippy.</a> Photo credit: Vivid Explosion Photography

  • Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park; Hawai'i County, Hawai'i

    Forget about chickens crossing the road. At Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, molten lava crosses it!

  • Via Krupp; Capri, Italy

    While the story goes that Via Krupp was originally built by a German businessman who wanted a footpath from his hotel to his research station, some say the path was constructed to make it easier for him to get from his hotel down to some really, really raunchy parties. <a href="http://www.trippy.com/friends/4eb96c1ee4b0c0ec367ca006/Ridiculously_Crazy_Roads.html">See all Ridiculously Crazy Roads on Trippy.</a> Photo credit: Ron/Gwen McWhorter

  • It gets too icy to navigate in the winter, but if you can hold out until summer, this is an incredible place to drive. With dozens of switchbacks and some steep inclines, it’s also a great place to bike. <a href="http://www.trippy.com/friends/4eb96c1ee4b0c0ec367ca006/Ridiculously_Crazy_Roads.html">See all Ridiculously Crazy Roads on Trippy.</a> Photo credit: Diego Gea
