If there is a 'Green man' crossing as part of the traffic light system then use the rules and advice for using a 'Green man' crossing (see page 16).
If there are no pedestrian lights at the crossing, watch both the traffic lights and the traffic. Do not cross when the traffic lights allow traffic to go forward, even if you think you have enough time to cross. You should only cross when the traffic on the road you wish to cross is stopped by red light. Follow the Road Crossing Code. Look out for traffic turning into the road which you are crossing.
If traffic lights are not working, watch the traffic and follow the Road Crossing Code to cross the road with extreme caution.
A 'Green man' crossing is marked by two rows of studs with yellow striped markings in between and has pedestrian lights.
If there is a path across the road marked by two lines of studs, use that path to cross. At crossing with no pedestrian lights - once you are sure the traffic lights for drivers are showing red and that the traffic has stopped, you may cross but keep watching the traffic around.
Watch out the traffic as some traffic lights allow traffic to proceed in some lanes while traffic in other lanes are stopped.
Look out for traffic turning into the road which you are crossing. The driver may not see you or give way to you.
At some junctions, the area of roadway over which you may cross is marked with a box of white criss-cross lines. Do not confuse this marking with the yellow criss-cross lines for 'box junction' marking for drivers - do not cross on an area of roadway marked with yellow criss-cross lines.
The yellow criss-cross lines for 'box junction' road marking for driver - do not cross over the marking.
Crossing North-west Railway (light rail)
Light rail vehicles can run at very high speed and are quiet. When crossing light rail tracks, use proper crossing places including footbridges, subways and 'Green man' crossings.
Certain sections of the tracks are laid along lightly trafficked roads where no proper crossing places are provided. Under such circumstance, you should follow the Road Crossing Code and exercise extra care when crossing the tracks.
