20+ Years Experience
Specialist Decorative Crossings
We are a decorative pedestrian crossings company that works with clients across the UK.
Our team specialises in making pedestrian crossings safer for everyone and offers thermoplastic markings to these areas.
We work in the design and installation of all road markings and have transformed roads across the nation to become safer places for everyone.
We create pedestrian crossings markings using preformed thermoplastic, ensuring longevity and durability in any location.
Based in London, our team has worked on all kinds of crossings and crosswalks across the UK by overseeing the installation of markings to ensure the smooth transport of vehicles and walkers.
With a creative eye and a great understanding of the traffic safety laws in North Yorkshire, our team can work on all applications of road markings, from design to installation and even replacement.
We want to make roads an exciting and safe place to be for everyone, which is why we work with students and artists to create road markings.
We have contributed to many an artwork project related to road crossings in the UK and continue to offer a leading service in this field.
If you are interested in the work we do or want to learn more, please contact the team today.
Our company specialises in pedestrian crossing marking designs, all of which are made of preformed thermoplastic and high-durability paint to ensure longevity.
We are a creative business that provides essential road safety signs as well as making crosswalks across the county bright places to be. All of our colourful pedestrian crossings artwork is manufactured in the UK, and we offer bespoke designs to our clients.
With our markings, it is easier to catch the attention of pedestrians and get them excited about living in a particular area.
We believe that even crossing the street should be a fun and engaging experience, which is why we offer colourful markings for pedestrian crossings, road lanes, and many other locations across the nation.
Working with every local council and creative people in North Yorkshire, we can provide preformed thermoplastic artwork for the following applications:
Zebra crossings, also known as a marked crosswalk, is a pedestrian crossing marked with white lines in the road. This is a way of making it safer for pedestrians to cross the street, even with high levels of traffic.
These white lines are installed in the road to allow walkers to pass and indicate that pedestrians have precedence over vehicles. In many cases, the city council or county council will have the jurisdiction to determine where these crossings go.
We work in the installation of white lines to ensure that drivers know when to slow down and allow people to cross.
These kinds of crosswalks have traffic signals for both vehicles and pedestrians for maximum safety. Like other pedestrian crossings, white lines will be installed onto the road to indicate where pedestrians can cross.
For this kind of crosswalk, however, traffic lights are also required, and this will be provided by your city or county council. We work on the installation of road signs and markings, which will be signed off by the council.
These kinds of crossings can be used at all hours of the day and throughout the year, even in high-traffic areas.
This is an older project, and we have provided road markings in the past. This kind of crosswalk is the name for older pelican crossings, as the lights and lines are still used.
However, for these kinds of crossings, the lights that signal when it is safe for pedestrians to cross the road are on the same side of the road, as opposed to on the opposite side.
Many of these pedestrian crossings are improved with our colourful artwork and this is a common project in popular city locations as it makes the roads more appealing. As well as working on the safety of pedestrians, our artwork can also improve older crosswalks and contribute to the aesthetics of the city overall.
For example, in September 2020, two pedestrian crossings of this kind in Charles Street, London, were improved using artwork which has seen a lot of support from locals and tourists alike.
These crosswalks can be used for both pedestrians and cyclists. You will commonly find this kind of crosswalk in a large city where there is more traffic to deal with.
As safety is a large concern in these locations, we have worked on many toucan crossing design projects over the years and provided safety markings for the roads. Common colours for these kinds of crossings include white and yellow lines.
This is a specialised crosswalk designed specifically for horse riders to maintain safety on the roads.
There are thousands of school crossings across the nation, which are indicated by road safety markings. Common colours in these areas include yellow and white road markings, which indicate when children will be passing.
These designs are used during the school day and at key points in the academic year, such as the start of school in September, to maintain road safety. Congestion is a common problem at school crossings during the academic year, which is why these markings are applied.
Our preformed thermoplastic markings will be applied at the request of the city council and installed to indicate when drivers should slow down a bit to avoid accidents.
Due to the fact most schools return in September, it is common for this kind of project to be requested during the summer. This is done to maintain safety on the street and to allow students to cross the road safely during peak times when they eventually return, and we are happy to help.
We have installed essential safety markings for any street or road in the country, but this is not all we do. We understand that the public may want to spruce up their streets a bit which is why we also offer artistic pedestrian crossings and other road markings.
These can be installed at the request of the city, and we work on all kinds of projects, such as:
Whether there is a national event or simply a need to brighten up the street, we offer our markings in all colours to suit your needs. We can also replace old markings to ensure the roads are bright and safe for everyone, as well as offer bespoke designs to suit your needs.
In support of LGBTQ+ rights, it is common for a city to replace its standard street crossing with a rainbow crossing during Pride.
Pride events take place throughout the summer, which is when we commonly provide colourful street markings. However, these can be used at all times as discrimination is still a problem. A city can show its stance by using artwork in high-traffic areas.
If a street leads to a large tourist attraction, like a zoo, then we can create colourful markings to indicate this.
As a way to get people excited about visiting key locations in your city, we can decorate the street with road markings and pedestrian crossings to indicate when they are getting closer.
Theme parks can become very busy, especially during peak seasons, which means safety is a concern.
We can offer road and street markings to tackle this problem, helping to keep people in orderly lines and ensuring there is a steady flow of transport throughout the theme park. We use colourful designs to fit in with your theme and keep people excited, while also ensuring their safety.
A common project for our team these days is to work with brands during promotional events.
We can offer colourful crossings and road markings to suit your brand and advertise your event in key locations. Our markings can last a long time, but they can also be installed for a set period to cover your promotion.

The average cost of a pedestrian crossing design is between £2,500-£5,000.
The total cost of a project will vary based on factors such as the location, the size of the area, and the design required. Bespoke requests will cost more than standard safety signs, but we aim to offer a cost-effective service to all our clients.

A controlled crossing is one where pedestrians can signal that they want to cross the road, such as a pelican crossing.
These are indicated not only by the lights but also by the markings on the road, which we can provide. Most of these crossings will look the same, but our company can work to improve them with our colourful markings.
An uncontrolled crossing is a space where there is no prior indication of when pedestrians want to cross the road, like at a zebra crossing. While safety is important at all crossings, it is paramount here as the public can walk across the road at any moment.
When working on this kind of project, we use a range of colours. This is due to the fact that colourful crossings are more successful in keeping pedestrians, especially children, alert when crossing the road which reduces the risk of error.
If you are interested in working on a colourful crossing project, then you have come to the right place.
We offer a range of services to clients across the nation and are more than happy to help. From standard safety signs to bespoke artwork, we offer a great deal of markings and provide installation on-site.
