"Examples of 'AGA' Road Beacons as approved by
the Ministry of Transport and rank for grant,
and which are in service in Edinburgh, Essex, Forfar, Hertfordshire, Kent,
Middlesex, Southampton, Staffordshire, Surrey, Worcestershire and
The lighting apparatus employed is identical
with the 'AGA' automatic unattended marine lighting system, as employed
throughout the word for lighthouses, beacons, and buoys, and the same
essential high degree of reliability is guaranteed.
'AGA' road beacons contain their own supply of
illuminant, and are, therefore, altogether independent of public supplies
of town's gas or electricity. They may be placed in position and
moved if necessary, without disturbing the road surface.
Their flashing light character is maintained
night and day without attention of any kind for periods of six months.
The replacement of the exhausted cylinder of illuminant occupies two men
for less than thirty minute each six months.
'AGA' road beacons equipped with electric
light have been produced to offer uniformity of character within City and
Borough areas where electricity supply mains are available.
The standard colour of the flashing light
signal now exhibited is red. Green or yellow lenses may equally well
be employed should circumstances warrant it, and existing beacons can very
easily be modified to produce the requisite colour signal."
