Creative Pedestrian Crossings Around The World

Some streets are proving to be a little more fun than others with their incredible creative crosswalks. Some of these pedestrian crossings have been modified with colourful and unusual designs whether  for safety reason, art or celebrations. They feature flowers, zebras, hearts, piano keyboards and other magnificent pictures. Creative crosswalks are a great way to showcase the culture and history of a neighbourhood or serve as gateways to key civic, commercial and mixed-use areas.
