This project details a shared vehicular driveway crossing an accessible path of travel where a motorist’s vision is limited. Because this vehicular driveway is part of a larger vehicular precinct, (e.g. car part or lane-way), and that the motorist’s vision is limited because of the adjacent property boundaries, warning indicators have been installed 300mm back from the kerb to a depth of 600mm across the entire length of the accessible path of travel.
The tactile pad has also been set back 300mm from the edge of property boundary all the path of travel. This is because a pedestrian would not walk that close to a wall or other easily identifiable natural tactile cue. The set back from the property boundary also allows cleaning accessibility as dirt and debris can gather in these types situations, especially on heavily trafficked environments.
