Road Threshold Treatments

Threshold treatments are coloured and / or textured road surface treatments that contrast with the adjacent roadways. They aim is to alert drivers that they are changing driving environment using visual and tactical clues. Pedestrian threshold treatment crossings provide better accessibility and safety for pedestrians to cross and drivers to stay alert and aware of the change in environment. Raised threshold treatments do not change who has right of way at an intersection, but merely highlight the path of pedestrian movement and slow vehicle traffic at these intersections
