Pedestrian crossings - how they work

Guest speaker: Mike Best, Traffic Signals Officer, Oxfordshire County Council

Mike Best gave an excellent  illustrated talk on the way the different types of signalled crossings work. (See linked page for summary of the main types). His knowledge and enthusiasm made this very technical area much easier to understand. He came prepared to answer our questions and took some away for colleagues to deal with. His contact details for future problems are tel 01865 815096 or mike.best@oxfordshire.gov.uk
