Retro reflective high quality sheets have been installed at this gate, which will show up when the light of the car falls. The color of these sheets is kept pink and green. Entry gate has been prepared for climbing elevated road and the sheets used to make it are anti-corrosion. That’s why they do not need repair again and again.
