Zebra crossings get more white in their stripe
A new pedestrian crossing marking aims to make zebra crossings safer for pedestrians by widening the stripes of white paint from 300mm to 600mm in line with best-practice in Australia. The white stripes are what makes a crossing stand out and by making them wider, they become more visible to drivers. The formal gazette notice with the technical details includes guidance for an interim design for councils wanting to retrofit their current zebra crossings in advance of new ones.
