Cycle routes will inevitably need to cross the road at some point between intersections (i.e. in the midblock area). This may require interaction with motorised traffic and/or pedestrians.

Choosing and designing an appropriate crossing to accommodate people cycling requires careful consideration of a number of factors such as the type of facility between intersections and the target users of the facility.
Design guidance for the following crossing types is provided:
