Raised Pedestrian Crossing - Morehead Street, Lambton

Page hero image

What is proposed

We are seeking feedback on a proposal to upgrade the existing pedestrian crossing on Morehead Street Lambton near Lambton Library to a raised pedestrian crossing to improve pedestrian safety in the local centre.

The existing 'zebra' crossing (pictured above) is located on Morehead Street on the south side of the intersection with Elder Street.  The crossing is used by pedestrians for safe access between the Lambton Local Centre, Lambton Library and Lambton Park and is used regularly by school students from Lambton Public School. 

Raised pedestrian crossings are located where there are high levels of pedestrian activity. They are raised to increase visibility for approaching drivers and slow down traffic.

The proposed design of the raised pedestrian crossing includes kerb extensions to narrow the roadway to further slow traffic and reduce the crossing distance.
