Toucan crossings are where pedestrians and cyclists share a wide and unsegregated crossing area. Cyclists can ride across – all users should avoid changing direction suddenly. Cyclists should keep their speed down and be prepared to give way to avoid possible conflicts.
Toucan Crossings in Dundee include:
- Balgowan Avenue
Intelligent Toucan Crossings
The latest design of road crossing for both pedestrians and cyclists.
- Built in sensors checking to see if anyone is waiting to cross.
- Less delays stopping traffic only for as long as it takes for people to cross the road and only when someone is waiting.
- Safer, clearer signals protecting people crossing by a red traffic light until they reach the other side of the road. There is no flashing amber phase.
How to use the crossing
- Pedestrians - watch the red man on the display nearest to you. When it changes to green, a bleeper may sound and you may cross the road with care.
- Cyclists - watch the red cycle on the display nearest to you. When it changes to green, a bleeper may sound and you may ride across the road with care.
- Always look left and right to check traffic before crossing the road
- Toucan crossings are shared by cyclists and pedestrians
- Cyclists must be considerate to pedestrians
