Rainbow Crossings

Traditional white crosswalk markings with parrallel rainbow-coloured strips extending fully from curb to curb.

The CNIB Foundation is unaware of any guidelines or standards which specify how rainbow crossings should be designed.

In the absence of any detailed studies, the following guidelines will help to ensure that pedestrians with sight loss can continue to independently navigate the built environment when rainbow cross walks are deployed.

Crosswalkconsists of parrallel raibow-coloured strips without traditional white markings.
