Some information and photos of highways and their attendant roadside furniture (signs).

Marshalite - Museum Victoria.  Pdf file.  Information on the clock face signals that used to be in some Melbourne suburbs. It says here that the last was in use until 1966. Yet I remember seeing them in the late 1970's, having not being born until 1967.  Acrobat reader required to view.

Animated traffic signal gifs   Showing how signals are phased in different countries.

Berkshire Junction   Model traffic lights for model railways.

C64 unlimited  Hands up all those who had a Commodore 64 computer? This site should bring back many memories. But the reason for the link here is simply because the game "Traffic" is available for download here. You can also download a C64 emulator and play Traffic (or any other C64 game) on your pc.
Traffic is a game where you look down on a city and control the traffic lights to keep the streets free from gridlock.
The game also has the most laughable attempt of synthesized speech I've ever heard. How technology has improved since then.  :)
