Road Buoy / Infrastructure

Road Buoy
Road Buoy

Curbs can separate the driveway from the sidewalk. But curbs are often flooded when cities are flooded. It makes it impossible for pedestrians to determine their route. At the same time, curbs under water also become a risk factor in wading. Road Buoy combines buoys with curbs to guide the road direction and safe wading depth for pedestrians. Buoys can also be designed in different colors. It can prompt emergency personnel to find and dredge the drainage outlet in time to reduce the impact of waterlogging.
