Maps

This page has maps showing the locations of flush kerbs in Pembrokeshire. More maps will be added until hopefully all of the county is covered.

Pembrokeshire Access Group with the help of friends such as the VIP 12 Pathways group from Greenhill School in Tenby is currently surveying key towns in Pembrokeshire to produce maps showing the locations of flush kerbs (sometimes called dropped kerbs or kerb cuts) in the county. This will help disabled visitors and residents to find out where they can easily get on and off the pavement and also where controlled crossings such as zebra's and pelican's can be found.

We only list flush kerbs which have an appropriate tactile paving surface. Blind and partially sighted people depend on the roadside kerb to let them know where the pavement is and therefore where the road is. The tactile paving tells them that that the kerb is missing so that they do not inadvertently stray into the road and warns them to proceed with caution.

Flush kerbs accompanied by buff blister type tactile paving buff blister type tactile paving can indicate either an uncontrolled crossing or simply an opportunity to get on or off the pavement.

Flush kerbs accompanied by red blister type tactile paving red blister type tactile paving should only indicate a controlled crossing. (eg puffin, pelican, toucan or zebra)
