I had assumed that parallel crossings could be constructed upon humps in the same way that Zebra crossings can. The Traffic Signs Manual, Chapter 4, Warning Signs (para 8.5.1) says so. TSRGD 2016 prescribes the use of “dragons teeth” Diag 1062 within the controlled area of such a crossing.
But then Chapter 6 Traffic Control (para 15.20.1) tells me I need to gain authorisation.
I’ve concluded that it is actually the Highways (Road Humps) Regulations 1999 that are dictating this confusing situation and that they haven’t caught up with TSRGD 2016 because they don’t reference the newer parallel crossing arrangement.
Have I concluded correctly?
Was it deliberate to amend the TSGRD but not the Humps Regs?
