Traffic lights and pedestrian crossings

West Sussex County Council - WSCC - small

Traffic lights and pedestrian crossings are run and maintained by West Sussex County Council.

Traffic lights: These are installed at junctions where there is a serious accident history or if they are an appropriate way of managing large vehicle flows

Pedestrian crossings: There are currently five types of controlled pedestrian crossings used in the United Kingdom. These are 'Zebra', 'Pelican', 'Puffin', 'Toucan' and 'Pegasus' crossings. The most basic form of crossing is a 'pedestrian refuge', this is usually in the form of an island in the centre of the road.

Portable traffic signals: Permission to use portable traffic signals on the Public Highway must be obtained from West Sussex County Council before you use them.
