Example text

Ideally, doors should be avoided at the entrance to the station, but this is not always feasible, for example for reasons of climate. Where doors are needed they should be automatic, linked either to a weight sensor or sensors mounted above the door. IMPROVING TRANSPORT ACCESSIBILITY FOR ALL: GUIDE TO GOOD PRACTICE – ISBN 92-821-0139-8 - © ECMT, 2006 INFRASTRUCTURE - 43 The clear width of the door(s) once open must be sufficient to allow easy access for anyone, including people in powered wheelchairs, walking with a helper or pushing a double-buggy.

Busy junctions require some form of control to assist pedestrians across the road. This may be just a pedestrian crossing (“zebra”) or a controlled crossing (traffic signals with a pedestrian phase and various other forms of control such as “pelicans” and “puffins”). Again all these crossings should have dropped kerbs and tactile warning surfaces. Further help can be given to visually-impaired pedestrians at controlled crossings by means of audible and tactile (or haptic) signals. Examples of these include the signal popularly known (in the UK) as “bleep and sweep” which is designed to be used at staggered crossings across roads which have a centre reservation, and audible signals coupled with apparatus that rotates or vibrates when it is safe to cross.

Meantime, there is some inconsistency even within one country, let alone between countries. g. diabetic retinopathy). IMPROVING TRANSPORT ACCESSIBILITY FOR ALL: GUIDE TO GOOD PRACTICE – ISBN 92-821-0139-8 - © ECMT, 2006 34 - THE ROAD AND PEDESTRIAN ENVIRONMENT • The surface should not be so rigorous that it causes problems to other pedestrians, particularly ambulant disabled people and wheelchair users. • Because most visually-impaired people still have some vision, tactile surfaces should be readily distinguishable by colour and tone from the general pedestrian area.
