Pedestrian Crossings

Evan Howle made this Freedom of Information request to Gateshead Metropolitan Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Gateshead Metropolitan Borough Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Gateshead Metropolitan Borough Council,

I am looking into finding out about the location of pedestrian crossings in Gateshead Council. Please could you provide me with the following:

1) A list of all the different pedestrian crossings within Gateshead Council boundaries. Including the location of all formal crossings: Zebra, Toucan, Pegasus, Staggered Pelican/Puffin and Toucan crossings.

2) Information on the type of tactile paving used at each site.

3) A list of all lowered kerbs in the Gateshead Council district. Showing the location of each and paying particular attention to the ones intended for use as pedestrian crossing points.

4) The above would ideally include the use of the Geocoordinate system information of each site, but also the street name and location.

The information will be used to provide a complete map of the District to aid in the navigation of Gateshead Council for people with limited mobility or requiring the use of a wheelchair.

Yours faithfully,

Evan Howle
