Pedestrian refuge islands provide pedestrians with a space to stop when crossing a road. They make it easier for pedestrians to find a break in traffic to cross, and they can also slow drivers down while keeping traffic moving.
They are often planted with small shrubs.
Sometimes they have a reflective or illuminated beacon.
Raised platforms provide crossing points for pedestrians as well as slowing down traffic with the raised level and textured surface. They often have tactiles paving to improve accessibility for vision-impaired people.
Raised platforms can be used in conjunction with kerb extensions to slow traffic further.
We use different threshold treatments to let drivers know they are entering a safer speed area, and the speed limit has dropped to 40km. Coloured and raised pedestrian platforms and pedestrian refuge islands are often installed in conjunction with speed limit signs and reminder signs.
One of the improvements we are making to bus stops around the city is putting in accessible kerbs. These kerbs make it much easier for people using mobility aids such as wheelchairs to get on and off the kneeling buses.
We have also built bus shelters which include a covered area for wheelchairs or mobility scooters, next to seating.
