Cycle tracks may be provided with priority crossings of roads where speeds are less than 30 mph, total traffic flows do not exceed 4,000 vehicles per day and the crossing is sited on a flat-topped road hump.

A number of mainland European countries allow the use of zebra-style pedestrian crossings by cyclists. At present cyclists may not lawfully cycle across zebra crossings within the UK and there are currently no layouts that can be delivered to achieve this. Where cycle tracks naturally bring cyclists to such facilities, wider than normal crossings should be provided and ‘Cyclists dismount’ signs used.
