Green lights for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the road together

Toucan crossing

Toucan crossings are designed so that they are wide enough for both pedestrians and cyclists to safely cross a road side by side. They allow cyclists to cross without dismounting which they would have to do at other crossings.

Indicative costs

Toucan crossings with anti-skid carriageway surfacing and associated street lighting cost approximately £80,000.

Dual crossings would cost approximately £180,000.



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.
