Push-Button Bicycle Signals with a Voice System
Aiming to provide the traffic services that embody the human-oriented concept and safeguard pedestrian and bicyclist safety, the Transportation Bureau has developed theinnovative pedestrian (bicyclist) push buttons and crossing signals, to replace the old countdown timers without a voice system. Upon pressing down the buttons,pedestrians and bicyclists will hear voice messages saying “the signal has been activated; please wait” or “please walk”. This function can prevent pedestrians and bicyclists from repeatedly pressing the button or rushing through the streets out of impatience. The traffic light has been renovated to be equipped with bike-shaped green and red lights and a countdown timer, to provide pedestrians and bicyclists with clearer, more accurate directions while ensuring that pedestrians and bicyclists have the right-of-way and enhancing road transport efficiency.

        The innovative push-button pedestrian and bicycle signals with a voice system was first installed at the intersection of Wufu Road and Gongyuan Road (Hesi Road) at the beginning of 2008. This trial operation gained positive recognition among the citizens. The push-button signals were then installed along all the bike paths and school entrances, where pedestrians and bicyclists frequently go across. These signals have also been installed at 35 intersections in this city, and have effectively strengthened safety of pedestrians and bicyclists.
