Lighting up to increase road safety

DPTI's Transport Project Delivery team has been overseeing the installation of LED line marking into the road pavement on the Panalatinga Road exit ramp, from the Southern Expressway, and at the intersection of Panalatinga, Kenihans and Main South roads.

The In Pavement Lights will improve visibility for road users and allow drivers to easily navigate the intersections, especially during low light and poor visibility conditions.

They are linked to the traffic signals and, when operating, will only activate when traffic is passing in the direction of the lighting. The photo below shows the lights being tested, before being linked to the signals.

Bright blue lights mark the lane separations leading into an intersection at night.
