Pegasus Crossing Assessment

Could anyone please let me know if there is an assessment criteria for determining when a Pegasus Crossing is justified? We have a site where a Greenway crosses a classified road, and have had a request to improve the crossing facilities. Many thanks

Joe,
you should initially follow the guidlines set out in Local Transport Note 1/95 - The Assessment of Pedestrian Crossings. The assessment framework will assist you to decide if a signal-controlled facility is needed.
Regards,
Peter

Thanks Peter - I'm aware of the criteria for pedestrians, but am wondering if there is any recommendation for horses. I have a site where there are few peds or horses, but have to be able to give a full reply on how we justify / assess pegasus crossings. I can't find anything which refers to nos. of horses etc.

I think your best bet is contacting the British Horse Society to see if they have any members in the area who may be able to advise on usage and then look for stables, riding schools, sadlers, farriers, etc. either side of the classified road, i.e. potential generators and attractors - and remember, current use of a crossing is no indicator of future use if it is perceived as sub-standard or dangerous by potential users.
