Guidance on the Use of Tactile Paving Surfaces (Department of Transport)
Tactile paving surfaces can be used to convey important information to visually impaired pedestrians about their environment, for example, hazard warning, directional guidance, or the presence of an amenity. This guidance provides detail about the use of a number of different types of tactile surface to give warning of potential hazards and for amenity purposes.
