These signals control alternation through the entry tunnel in the wall of the prison at Portland, Dorset

https://www.google.com/maps/@50.5639683 ... 312!8i6656

they are fully automatic 24x7. I can tell that because they are visible at night from a family house in Weymouth, about four miles away across Portland Harbour. Even early on Christmas morning we sat looking out over a totally still seascape, except for these signals regularly changing. I'm guessing they are just after the transition from highways to private property.

I have of course never used them :)

They look like they're of a make not regularly (if at all) used on public roads. Anyone recognise the make?

They look similar to those at the exit of Leeds Railway Station.

I don't know why those in Leeds are installed like that. Totally unlawful. Considering the set they replaced were proper Siemens Helios pelicans (as there was two together). Must be just a temporary measure because that whole area is been pedestrianised soon. Though they could of done a better job than that. I suppose they didn't want a normal set of lights in conctete blocks for a few years.

Found another one here I'm guessing it displays two arrows one left and one right.
