What will my dropped kerb look like?
Dropped kerbs are constructed using grasscrete, tarmac, slabs, block paving or concrete. The vast majority are dropped kerbs constructed in tarmac, although we will choose materials and kerbs to match the majority of other dropped kerbs already in the road.

A footway crossing will not be allowed where the parking area is of greater gradient than 1 in 10 (10%). This could cause difficulties for the driver entering and exiting the driveway, and reduce the visibility of pedestrians and vehicles on the highway. These gradients can also cause some vehicles to catch on the ground causing damage to both the vehicle and the highway.
