More are expected to be installed around Elizabeth St, between Park St and Liverpool St.

The digital screens, powered by solar, show the different clearways, restricted parking zones and bus zones according to the time of day.

Previous signs were often labelled because of an overload of information on single sign, with various rules for different times of the day and week plus special events or road work.

The new digital signs were announced in October as part of a $695 million Smart Technology Corridors program that aims to improve NSW roads with better signs, traffic lights and motorways.

Security camera will monitor the signs for any damage and authorities will be alerted if the screens need replacing.
