I wonder if there are many of the original red and green traffic lights still in use on the public highway in the UK? The 3 colour ones were introduced in 1958.

There is a working set on the Isle of Wight...

Hi Ray - welcome to h2g2 by the way.

I had no idea that there were still some two colour traffic lights in existence (roadworks excepted, of course...) There's plenty of old signs like the ones listed in Norfolk, but no old traffic lights. smiley - erm
