These adhesive tactile paving slabs are used in conjunction with a segregated shared cycle track/footway to advise visually impaired people of the correct side to enter.
The purpose of the tactile surface used in conjunction with a segregated shared cycle track/footway is to advise visually impaired people of the correct side to enter.
The cycleway tactile paving is used wherever a shared route begins, ends or crosses a carriageway. The tile ribs are used to identify the correct side of the route to enter, ensuring the safe segregation from cyclists.
Between the two routes is a central delineator strip (raised profile white line) that can be read by foot or cane. The strip runs along the entire shared route between cycle way & footpath.
The profile of the cycleway tactile paving comprises a series of raised, flat-topped bars, each 5mm high, 30mm wide, and spaced 70mm apart.
The central delineator strip (white finish) is 12-20mm high, 150mm wide with sloping sides and a flat top of 50mm.
