74 electronic bus stop signs will be installed this week along Chang'an Avenue in Beijing.
This brings the total number of the multi-purpose electronic signs along the main boulevard of the Chinese capital to 110.
The 'intelligent' signs will provide information about buses' current locations, so the potential passengers at the stop know how long they have to wait.
Being light emitting, the signs will enable people to check schedule and route information at night.
On the reverse of the sign there is a printed traffic-map of the city.
The signs are constructed to withstand the rigours of the Chinese capital's capricious climate.
