Toucan crossings (two-can cross) are provided for pedestrians and cyclists - where cyclists do not have to dismount to cross. They are often located where cycle routes cross busy roads.
A green cycle indicator is provided alongside the green man, which can be mounted either on the far side of the crossing like a Pelican, or on the nearside like a Puffin.
Pedestrians and cyclists should only cross when the green man/green cycle is illuminated and all the traffic has stopped. There may also be a bleeping sound to help the visually impaired. Some push button units are also fitted with a tactile knob under the unit which rotates when the green man/green cycle is illuminated.
Zig-zag markings are laid on both the approaches and the exits to the crossing. The zig-zags ban waiting or parking, prohibit vehicles from overtaking each other and warn the users of the increased risk of crossing in the zig-zag area.
Below are the two styles of toucan crossings:
Old style toucan crossing
New style toucan crossing
