To help pedestrians with mobility impairments, many crossings on the red route are level with the pavement. This makes it easier to cross and has the added benefit of slowing down traffic.
For those with visual impairments, tactile paving helps guide pedestrians safely to crossing points on the red route.
Ramps have been introduced to improve access and many footbridges are being widened, replaced or upgraded. Rest levels also allow you to take a break while crossing footbridges.
A number of bus stops along the red route have raised kerbs, allowing bus ramps to be used more easily.
Blue Badge holders benefit from a range of special allowances when using the red route. These include provisions for stopping to set down or pick up passengers, and parking spaces which are reserved solely for the use of Blue Badge holders.
To help you make the most of the Blue Badge concessions available, we have published a guide which includes information on parking and stopping on the red route, allowances for taxis and minicabs, as well as general advice on using the Blue Badge.
