Streets for All : 3 Guardrails and crossings

Pedestrian guardrails have been used extensively since the 1940s, as part of the ongoing attempt to reduce conflict between pedestrians and vehicles in town centres. It has been especially favoured on the approaches to pedestrian crossings, and on signal controlled junctions where the pedestrian desire line was different to the safe controlled route.

We are now (September 2017) consulting on revised Streets for All guidance. See our guidance consultations webpage for more details.

The consultation closes at 5pm on Thursday 9 November 2017.
