septimus divergence

On signs

Recently I've been having some education in the meaning of road signs.

RAMP
Near this sign is a near-vertical change in the road level, probably accompanied by inadequate and hastily applied tarmac in a vain attempt to level it out.
TEMPORARY ROAD SURFACE
We have scraped the upper surface of the road off, although imperfectly. What remains was never intended to be a surface at all, but is probably locally differentiable at all points.
WARNING: RAISED IRONWORKS
OK, I have to admit that I haven't figured this one out yet, not having seen any flying forges in the region of such a sign.
