Corduroy surface mounted tactile paving is used to warn visually impaired people of the presence of specific hazards; steps, level crossings or the approach to on-street light rapid transport (LTR) platforms. It is also used where a footway joins a shared route, it conveys the message hazard, proceed with caution.
