Parallel crossings enable cyclists to cross a road safely and with the same level of priority as a zebra crossing gives a pedestrian. The crossing looks similar to a zebra crossing but also includes a cycling crossing area which is parallel to the zebra crossing area, this is marked by broken white lines.
Parallel crossings with anti-skid carriageway surfacing and associated street lighting cost approximately £40,000 – £50,000.
Officers will undertake an assessment to determine what type of crossing facility is most appropriate, which may include not making alterations to the existing environment. This assessment will follow the current Department for Transport guidance in Chapter 6 of the Traffic Signs manual.
All costs stated are for guidance only.
Figures provided are estimates and are reviewed annually, with all costs subject to a site survey assessment.
