Well done. New tactile paving.. But how on earth are people with reduced mobility supposed to use the button?
The distance between the button and the kerb edge and the depth of the slope into the road will create barriers to a safe crossing. Imagine how a wheel chair user will deal with this situation. Purely a thoughtless design and implementation.
The Tactile Cone revolves when the green man come on. Great.. But it depends on whether you have found the cone or it is close enough to the crossing for you to have enough time to cross.
There is simply no explanation for this. The complete absence of a controlled crossing on one side of the road.
The safest place to cross is at the narrowest point so what is the point in having the pedestrian crossing control button so far away?
Disability is the consequence of an impairment that may be physical, cognitive, mental, sensory, emotional, developmental, or some combination of these. A disability may be present from birth, or occur during a person's lifetime. Or...be brought about by poor design in our infrastructure. We are all disabled when we have to use crossings like this.
Installing tactile paving promotes a safe route. I'm thinking this is a law suite waiting to happen.
Options. Wait for help, hope that cars stop or just wait for a gap. Whatever he decides it's pretty certain this crossing causes a certain amount of anxiety.
Pressing a button is so easy...unless it is beyond your reach.
