Guidance on the use of tactile paving surfaces (Withdrawn)
Tactile paving surfaces can be used to convey important information to visually impaired pedestrians about their environment, for example, hazard warning, directional guidance, or the presence of an amenity. Guidance is given on the use of a number of different types of tactile surfaces to give warning of potential hazards and for amenity purposes to give guidance and information.
Superseded by Guidance on the use of tactile paving surfaces. 2nd edition (DfT, 2002). Supersedes - Use of dropped kerbs and tactile surfaces at pedestrian crossing points (TR 0141), and Disability Unit Circular DU 1/91.
