Roadwork signs in Uzbekistan belong to the Russian Group of signs found everywhere in the former Soviet block (e.g. Kazachstan, Belarus). The thor­oughbred sign collector will notice that the Uzbeks deviate in one small aspect: they are people of one piece. The Russian kind is composed of several body parts, at least 2 (leg and rest of the body) but often more (5 parts + head in Lithuania).

Most peculiar interpretation as the heap is see-through ! The spade can be seen although stuck into the heap. Germany and Macedonia are the only countries where we've found something similar.
