Pedestrian crossings (Zebra) on slip lanes are not the answer.

New Zealand research (Royce B 2019) showed that a zebra crossing on a slip lane presents a higher risk scenario than other treatments.

Safe System alignment (best to worst):

  1. No slip lane
  2. Raised signalised crossing
  3. Raised pedestrian crossing (Wombat)
  4. Raised platform (no crossing control)
  5. At-grade signalised crossing
  6. No crossing control
  7. Pedestrian crossing (Zebra)

Always aim for an entry angle >70deg

(always consider site specific issues)
