runway stop bars

Similar to runway guard lights, runway stop bar lights are in-pavement lights on taxiways at intersections with runways. As opposed to RGLs that provide warning to pilots approaching a runway, runway stop bar lights are designed to act as “stop” lights, directing aircraft and vehicles on the taxiway not to enter the runway environment. Runway stop bar lights are activated with red illuminations during periods of runway occupancy or other instances where entrance from the taxiway to the runway is prohibited. In-pavement runway stop bar lighting is typically installed in conjunction with elevated runway guard lights located outside the width of the pavement.
