London (ANI): It"s official – the famous zebra road crossing
featured on the album cover of Beatles' 'Abbey Road' is set to get
a place in rock-and-roll history. The crossing is to be given
listed status, the first time the accolade has been given to a
piece of road furniture, reports the Telegraph.
The move follows the listing of the Abbey Road studios building
earlier this year, and the crossing's growing status as one of the
capital's most popular tourist attractions. John Penrose, the
tourism minister, will announce the decision to grant the crossing
Grade II-listed status on the advice of English Heritage.
