Crossing especially for horse riders

Pegasus crossing

A pegasus crossing is a type of crossing with special consideration for horse riders, with the control panel being positioned 2 metres above the ground to assist horse riders so they don’t have to dismount in order to operate the crossing.

These signalised horse crossing points are used where horse road crossing movements are particularly high and the road in question experiences excessive speed.

Indicative costs

Pegasus crossings with anti-skid carriageway surfacing and associated street lighting cost approximately £130,000.

Dual crossings would cost approximately £250,000.



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.
