Freedom of Information Request

Pedestrian crossings

Received: 20 May 2022

RE: Request under the Freedom of Information Act (2000)

Dear Information Team

This is an information request relating to the painting of pedestrian crossings in areas under the council's remit.

Please include the information for each of the following periods; 2019-20, 2020-21, 2021-22:
* The total number of pedestrian crossings painted or repainted in non-traditional colours or themes
* The total cost of painting or repainting these crossings, including a breakdown of how much was spent on each crossing
* The location of each crossing, including pictures of each crossing
Please also include crossings which have been painted non-traditional colours or themes which have been restored to traditional colours or themes, and the cost of doing so
By crossings painted in non-traditional colours or themes, I mean any pedestrian crossing, including 'zebra', 'puffin', 'pelican' and 'toucan', which includes any non-traditional markings, whether or not they are additional to standard markings or replace standard markings. The most common would likely be crossings painted in rainbow themes.
An example of a crossing where non-traditional markings replace standard markings is here.
An example of a crossing where non-traditional markings are added to traditional markings is here.
A crossing with non-traditional markings which isn't rainbow themed can be seen here.
If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request.

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to contact me via email or phone and I will be very happy to clarify what I am asking for.
