cut through

Traffic islands must have kerbed cut-throughs for the vision impaired, as shown here, but with full width tactile tiles, and should have flat, 2% grades for self cleaning, not steep kerb ramps. All these improvements assist pedestrians, the vision-impaired, prams, wheelchairs, cyclists and traffic. At major intersections, cyclists must be encouraged to mix with pedestrians rather than with car traffic, using wide cross-walks and cyclist lanterns.
