You have to specify what you mean by that: 1 single light, or all of them on the 4 corners of the intersection, maybe even including overhead lights.

I meant one single only.Our authority will install one infront a new school to avoid accidents. I asked cause the price (US$34.000) it seems exaggerated to much.

In that case, YES it is. No way it will cost that much without someone encashing a fat cheque.

The first article I've stumbled upon cites a 18,2 million HUF/ 0,06 million EUR/ 0,08 million USD for an entire set for an intersection in Győr.

A "lantern" three LED sets, green, red and orange costs approx. €1200 half that money for a traditional "light bulb" set.

A steel pole won't cost much. For $34.000 they have to drive a power cable under a couple of miles of hardtop and repave the cut- Sounds weird

There is a special on in Aldi at the moment, buy one, get 20 free. Personally I think the council has been going crazy lately though taking up this offer.
