Green man issued with a stopwatch

Crossing central Auckland's main shopping street is a dangerous game at the best of times, but new count-down clocks should allow pedestrians a better chance of escaping harm at one of its busiest intersections.The clocks at the intersection of Queen and Victoria Sts were switched on yesterday for a six-month trial to determine whether the technology should be introduced throughout the country. Pedestrians are given a standard six-second phase in which a green "walking" figure features on the bottom light in each set, before it is replaced by a 20-second count-down clock.
