Traffic signals, or stoplights are signalling devices positioned at road intersections, pedestrian crossings. These devices are designed to assign right of way to various traffic and pedestrian movements at an intersection. There are three common types of traffic signals colours facing oncoming traffic: red on top, amber in the middle, and green below that. The public’s understanding of the function of traffic signals can improve driving habits by slowing traffic and reducing traffic collisions.
The City of Al Ain, in the United Arab Emirates, situated near the eastern border of Oman also known as the Garden City for its palm groves and natural springs is committed to providing drivers and pedestrians with a safe road by installing not just functional but decorative traffic lights.
Alico Industries’ Architectural Division manufactured and supplied all of the traffic light posts and enclosures at different intersections in the city. This includes the intersection cantilevers, pedestrian traffic lights, and even the bollards which all have a similar aesthetic, highlighted in black and gold colours making the area more attractive.
