The Difference Between Pelican Crossing and Puffin Crossing

  • Pelican Crossings

At the pelican crossings, The traffic Signal will be changed after a timed delay by pressing pedestrian button. In general, it appears in a straight line or staggered road. If the pelican crossing goes straight across the road then you would treat it as one crossing even if it has a central refuge. If the crossing is staggered and not in line then the crossings are treated as seperate.

  • Puffin Crossings

Puffin Crossings(Pedestrian User-Friendly Intelligent Crossings) look very similar to pelican crossings. But no sensors are on top of the traffic lights. These sensors detect if pedestrian are crossing slowly and can hold the red traffic light longer if needed.

These do not a flashing amber light as part of its sequence and phase like normal traffic lights.

Pedestrians can also run across the road from an angle and not start at the crossing.
