Pedestrian Countdown Timer
Pedestrian countdown timers help to create a more pedestrian friendly environment by giving pedestrians more information and greater awareness of their ability to cross the road. The timers enable pedestrians at the crossing to make better decisions when crossing the road. They better inform pedestrians about how many seconds they have left to safely cross the road before the red 'don't walk' symbol is displayed.
The length of time for pedestrians to cross remains the same - this allows pedestrians adequate time to the cross the road and means traffic will not be affected by the change. Pedestrian countdown timers have been installed at Henley Beach Road, The Parade, Port Road and the City. These types of initiatives support and encourage a vibrant Adelaide.
