Torrevieja City Council have begun works to implement pictograms on pedestrian crossings throughout the city as they work towards making Torrevieja more accessible and friendly for ASD sufferers.

CHILDREN and people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will benefit from the changes that have already started in Torrevieja.
Several pictograms of blue colour, a colour that symbolises autism, appear on the freshly painted white lines so that those with ASD will be able to understand the basic traffic rules of the city.
Stop, Look, Traffic Light / Car Stopped and Cross are pictograms being used on the road markings which will put people on alert so they can cross the road safely.
The developers of the project, the TEAVIAL Association, will provide the Torrevieja City Council and the city’s schools with a didactic guide.
These guides are so that the public and students will have a better understanding of the meanings behind the pictograms and their importance in integrating ASD sufferers into normal situations.
The project was launched on crossings surrounding schools and will continue throughout the city.
