Dear West Sussex County Council,

I am looking to find out the locations of Pedestrian ‘Centre Island’ crossings in West Sussex County Council. Please can you provide me with the following information:

1) A list of all the pedestrian crossings marked with a white centre island globe beacon within West Sussex County Council boundaries.

2) Information on how many ‘White centre island globe beacons’ on each crossing point.

3) The above would ideally include the use of the Geo-coordinate 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 West Sussex County Council for pedestrians.

Yours faithfully,

John Kariuki, West Sussex County Council

Dear John Kariuki,

Our Ref: FOI/1910

On 08/01/2021 you made the following request for information, which has
been dealt with in accordance with the provisions Environmental
Information Regulations 2004

EIR Re: Pedestrian ‘Centre Island’ crossings in West Sussex

We have now completed a search for the information which you requested and
confirm that this Authority holds data relevant to your request.

The Response to your request is as follows:

I have attached a list of all 425 locations which are identified as
islands with a beacon light.  Unfortunately, our system does not
differentiate between the different types of islands and therefore we are
unable to identify the locations that are specifically for pedestrian

As an example here is a refuge beacon at a crossing point
[1] however on the same road
approximately 500 metres away there is a refuge beacon without a crossing
point [2]
