Sight line for the partially sighted

Construction sites should take extra precautions to ensure that partially sighted local residents are aware of the works and do not put themselves in danger.

See the examples below for how one site addressed this:

  • The contractor teamed up with Street Works to roll out a ‘sight line’ initiative which allows people with impaired vision to use a Braille feature on the hoarding to safely direct them around site.
  • Information about the works being carried out on site is given in Braille and can also be downloaded through a QR code.
  • This sight line initiative was the first one to be rolled out within Westminster and the site has received some great feedback.
