This key indicates whether a signal-controlled pedestrian crossing features a tactile arrow showing a blind person the direction to which the pedestrian crossing leads. The tactile arrow would be located on or near the pedestrian call button.
How to map
The highway=crossing node or highway=footway footway=crossing way should first have a crossing=traffic_signals or crossing:signals=yes tag to indicate that the pedestrian crossing is signal-controlled. It should also be tagged button_operated=yes to indicate that there is a pedestrian call button. Tag it with one of the following values to indicate whether there is a tactile arrow on the device housing the call button, which may be a pole or a control box:
- traffic_signals:arrow=no – no tactile arrow present on the device
- traffic_signals:arrow=yes – tactile arrow present somewhere on the device
