Diagonal Crossing, originally uploaded by jeremyfoo.

This is perhaps one of the busiest and most unique road junctions in Singapore. Traffic flows in all directions controlled by a multitude of traffic lights.

Most of the advances in traffic control technologies are also used here, with the introduction of the integrated countdown timer into the red light for the pedestrian crossing.

Still, the coolest feature would be the fact that pedestrians can cross the road diagonally. Apart from that, you have options to cross the road at the usualy perimeter as well as through the centre depending on how the traffic is flowing.

To date, I have never had the chance nor have seen others do the diagonal bit but I sure as hell want to try one of these days, just to stand in the middle of the road and snap pictures.
