Guidelines for facilities for blind and vision-impaired pedestrians

The purpose of this guideline is to provide the best practice design and installation principles for pedestrian facilities that assist blind and vision-impaired people. Standardising pedestrian facilities will give consistent directional and warning messages to blind and vision-impaired people, as well as increasing their safety while crossing roads and throughout the entire walking journey.
