Guiding visually impaired people along a route when the traditional cues, such as a property line or kerb edge, are not available.
The purpose of the guidance path surface is to guide visually impaired people along a route when the traditional cues, such as a property line or kerb edge, are not available. It can also be used to guide people around obstacles, for example street furniture in a pedestrianised area. The surface has been designed so that people can be guided along the route either by walking on the tactile surface or by maintaining contact with a long cane.
To maximise its effectiveness, the surface should be used sparingly and only after consultation with relevant local groups.
