Coloured lanes

Coloured lanes offer contrast and have the potential to increase safety by clearly differentiating where different types of traffic should travel

Coloured lanes offer highly visible contrast and can increase safety by clearly managing traffic flow.  By differentiating where different types of traffic should travel, for example, cars, buses, bicycles and even pedestrians, a safer  environment is created.

Benefits

  • Safer traffic flow;
  • Clearer demarcation of lanes to keep traffic moving smoothly; and
  • Highly visible lanes for ease of use.

It is ideal for use in:

  • Bicycle & pedestrian & bus lanes;
  • Crossing paths in roundabouts;
  • School exits; and
  • Speed regulation.

Photo of a tunnel

Shell Mexphalte-C has been used to produce white surfaces that enhance visibility and safety in tunnels

A light coloured surface can increase contrast to the human eye making cars and obstacles more visible in a tunnel. Using Shell Mexphalte C the light coloured surface can also help contribute to electricity cost savings due to the increased visibility and reduced need for lighting.

During application a lower temperature product will reduce heat radiation and fumes, thus allowing safer handling, and improved workability during laying operations, which is key when operating in enclosed spaces, such as tunnels.

Benefits

  • reduced fumes and heat during application;
  • higher visibility for safer driving conditions; and 
  • energy cost savings.
