The Milburn Junction

I used to live in a flat on St James Boulevard (aka Blenheim Street) and part of my walk home involved going past the Jackie Milburn statue (it was on the other side of the road) and what is known, according to the signpost, as the Milburn Junction.
The junction is controlled by traffic lights, traffic going up/down the road from the Redheugh Bridge into and from the town and coming out of Chinatown and that other little road near the brewery. There is a point when all of the lights are red.
When the lights were all red, I used to want to run into the middle of the junction and do a little dance, or a star-jump just because I could, and the cars couldn't run me over.
