Pedestrian crossings

Pelican crossings

We no longer install pelican crossings as the newer puffin crossings provide a better facility for pedestrians.

Pelican crossings are controlled by the pedestrian pressing the button on the WAIT box.

Pedestrians should only cross when the green man lights up and all the traffic has stopped. Pedestrians should not start to cross if the green man is flashing.

Sometimes there is a beeper to help blind or partially sighted people know when it is safe to cross. Alternatively, there may be a rotating knob underneath the WAIT box, which turns when the green man lights up.
