Parallel Crossing


A tiger crossing (officially parallel crossing) is a type of pedestrian & cycle crossing that works in a similar way to zebra crossings, in that traffic should give way to users crossing. Unlike a zebra crossing, bicycles can use the crossing by following the specially marked cycle route alongside without the need to dismount. Tiger crossings are designed to be used where a cycle route crosses the road at a perpendicular direction, and not to switch from cycle provision from one side of the road to the other as the crossing must be parallel to the zebra crossing. They should only be used when there is dedicated cycle infrastructure either side, such as cycle tracks.

Earlier Trial

The crossing has white and black triangles, rather than white and black stripes.

The first use of the term was linked to a trial scheme in Aylesbury town centre.
