It confuses the hell outta me sometimes still even after 12 years of driving over here
Actually all this could be done without red light. Complicating where it is not needed.

Well, I can say that traffic light in Japan that Nexis showed looks very complicated.

But Australia has a traffic light that looks more complicated than that traffic light in Japan.

Not all green lights works all time together. It's not complicated, it's just a moment cough when all green lights works at the same time. Most time it would be one or few.

The tunnel did not collapse. Circa 100 ceiling tiles came down (which weigh 1.5 tonnes each)

Apparently, the aging ceiling bolts may have cause the ceilings in the Sasago Tunnel (笹子トンネル) to collapse.

TOKYO, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- After a highway tunnel collapsed in Japan, killing nine people, its operator said at a press conference aging ceiling bolts may have caused the collapse. Ryoichi Yoshikawa, Central Japan Expressway Co.'s head of maintenance, said Monday of the incident Sunday in the Sasago Tunnel, 85 kilometers (53 miles) west of Tokyo, bolts holding 1.2-ton concrete panels to the ceiling of the tunnel were never replaced, and there are no records of repair work done in the past.
The tunnel opened in 1977, and although the ownership company said the tunnel passed an inspection in September, certain tests on the sections that collapsed were never undertaken.
The collapse occurred Sunday morning, with about 180 concrete panels falling onto traffic within the tunnel. About 30 cars were trapped, and of the nine confirmed deaths, five were from a burning car, the Japan Daily Press said Monday.
Yoshikawa ended his statement with the comment the lack of proper inspection was something the company will reflect upon, what the newspaper called "the most inadequate (of) apologies since the Fukushima crisis."

Japanese Expressway turns 50

The Japanese Expressway turns 50 years. On December 20, 1962 the first expressway of Japan opened to traffic. It was a portion of current C1 and Route 1 in Central Tokyo.
