The Traffic Light Tree

The confusing traffic light in London Docklands.

This artistic collection of traffic lights designed to look like a tree with 75 sets of flashing red, amber and green lights.

It can be found on the traffic control roundabout, at the junctions of Heron Quay Bank, Marsh Wall and Westferry Road.

Hopefully no drivers try to follow the signals...

"The Sculpture imitates the natural landscape of the adjacent London Plane Trees, while the changing pattern of the lights reveals and reflect the never ending rhythm of the surrounding domestic, financial and commercial activities" Artist Pierre Vivant, 1998
