Dedicated pedestrian crossing
BREEAM UK New Construction, Non-domestic Buildings (United Kingdom), Technical Manual, SD5078: BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 3.0, published by BRE Global Limited, suggests that a dedicated pedestrian crossing is:
‘Dedicated infrastructure or road markings and signage or instructions that enables a pedestrian to safely cross a vehicle carriageway on the assessed site and continue their journey to or from the building. Such a crossing must be fit for purpose, in that it will be appropriate for the width of the road, level of traffic and pedestrian use specific to the site. It will also act to alert drivers of vehicles using the carriageway to the potential presence of pedestrians in the carriageway, by ensuring they can be clearly seen and requiring the driver of the vehicle to give way to the pedestrian.’
