The first step in marking a zebra crossing is to measure and mark the position. The crossing should be located in a visible and safe place for pedestrians to cross. It should also be marked at least 10 meters away from any junction to ensure the safety of both pedestrians and drivers.

2. Use high-quality road marking paint:

To ensure the longevity and visibility of the zebra crossing, it is essential to use high-quality road marking paint. The paint should be durable, weather-resistant, and have good adhesion to the road surface.

reflective glass beads

To enhance the visibility of the zebra crossing, reflective materials like glass beads can be added to the paint. These materials reflect light and make the crossing visible even in low-light conditions.

3. Use stencils:

Stencils are an effective way of marking zebra crossings. They ensure that the lines are uniform and consistent in size. Stencils can be made from metal or other materials and can be reused multiple times.

4. Mark the stripes & zigzag lines:

Zebra crossings consist of two parallel lines, each with a width of 50mm, and spaced 400-600mm apart. The lines should be marked using a straight edge and a marking machine to ensure that they are straight and consistent in width.

Zebra crossings are also marked with zigzag lines at each end of the crossing. These lines are used to indicate to drivers that they are approaching a pedestrian crossing. The zigzag lines should be marked with a width of 400-600mm and a length of 1.5-2 meters.
