This mod allows you to places crossings on your roads at locations other than intersections and transitions between road types (where they are automatically placed).
To place a crossing, go to the Roads menu. Underneath the buttons which allow you to select straight, curved etc there should now be a button with a zebra crossing pattern on it. Select this and you will be able to place crossings at most of the same locations where you can currently create an intersection.
To remove a placed crossing, simply right click on it using the same tool.
NOTE: I’ve tried to squash all the major bugs, but please don’t blame me if it doesn’t work properly, corrupts your savegame or sets your computer on fire. However please DO submit a bug report (ideally as an Issue at the github link below) or, better yet a patch. Having said that, I haven’t had any reports of serious problems yet.
As far as as I know this mod is compatible with all other traffic management mods. In particular, I’ve tested it with:
* Toggle Traffic Lights
* Extended Road Upgrade
I’ve also had reports that it works fine with:
* Traffic Manager Mod
If you do find any incompatibilities, please let me know.
* For some reason the first time you place a crossing, the road briefly flickers. Subsequent placements are fine, though.
* The crossing texture looks smeared right at the centre on 4 lane roads, but 2 and 6 lane roads are fine.
* Add tooltips for when a crossing can’t be built
* Stop street signs appearing at crossings
* Highlight buildings which will be destroyed by crossing creation (which can sometimes happen on curved roads because the curvature changes slightly).

If you want to say “thanks” financially, there are plenty of people in the world who need the money more than me. Throw a few bucks to your favourite charity (mine’s http://msf.org ).
