Crossing points in Chatham Waterfront bus station
The previous road markings on the crossing points didn't conform to the standards and features such as beacons, generally associated with zebra crossings. There was confusion as to what type of crossings they were and what drivers and pedestrians using them should expect.
By removing the markings but retaining the existing crossing points this confusion has been removed. The new block paving has been laid in with two different colours and in a specific pattern to make them more conspicuous.
In addition to the above, the approach visibility to some of the crossings has been improved via an extension of the platform into the highway and a lowering of the Paddock wall by the crossing point entrance.
All drivers within the bus station must follow a Code of Conduct that limits speed and clearly states that crossing points must be respected at all times.
