11.11.5. Where a route is divided into separate parts for the use of cyclists and of pedestrians, segregation may be achieved using the continuous marking to diagram 1049B (S9‑6‑7), normally with a width of 150 mm, or by the raised profile marking to diagram 1049.1 (S9‑6‑8, see Figure 11-21). The latter is more easily detected by blind and partially sighted pedestrians. Alternatively, separation may be effected by the use of kerbs, a difference in level, or by the use of contrasting coloured surfaces. See Chapter 5 in respect of drainage issues associated with road markings. The segregated route is indicated by the sign to diagram 957 (S3‑2‑32, see Figure 11-22). This is placed at the start of the route as it prohibits motor vehicles. It may 133 CYCLE FACILITIES also be used as a repeater sign to remind pedestrians and cyclists which side of the track they should be using. The sign is generally used in conjunction with the cycle symbol marking to diagram 1057 which emphasises that part of the track used by cyclists. If this is to the right of the pedestrian part of the track (in the direction of travel) the cycle symbol on the upright sign faces right. The marking to diagram 1057 should, therefore, also face to the right. To reduce the number of upright repeater signs or to have none at all, the marking to diagram 1057 may be used on its own to indicate the part of the segregated route to be used by cyclists. The pedestrian symbol is not prescribed for use as a road marking, so must not be used on the pedestrian part of a segregated track or footway.
