Six college students in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province, recently painted a colorful, six-meter-long zebra crossing on their campus to help pedestrians.

The latest feature at WenHua College is designed to ease traffic pressure at the busy route between pavements linking the dorms and a teaching building.

The center of the crossing is painted as a watch and the stripes are painted with the four colors of red, white, blue and yellow.

The painting was finished in two days by a student club called IDEA.

He Yulu, leader of the club, said that they painted at dusk so as to test its visual effect at night.

Furthermore, they are planning to unveil another zebra-stripe crossing in the university which would depict Yellow Crane Tower, a landmark in the city.
