Pelican Crossings

On a pelican crossing, the red/green man indicators are on the far side of the road to where you are standing.


When the green man indicator is illuminated, it is safe to cross the road. It is sometimes accompanied by an audible signal. When the audible signal is not permitted for use, a tactile cone is provided under the push button unit. This rotates when the green man is lit.

Once the green man symbol starts to flash, pedestrians still have sufficient time to finish crossing the road. Pedestrians should NOT start to cross the road at this time.

If the crossing is clear of pedestrians, traffic may proceed through, but pedestrians have priority.
