Dancing roadworker

In our covid life it is always refreshing to see people putting a smile on others faces – and sometimes it doesn’t take much.

Traffic controller Claire is one such person. She’s been working on the Princes Highway in New South Wales near Bulli for the last two months. She and the other traffic controllers have to stop cars on an overpass to make sure traffic on an off-ramp doesn’t build up.

What started off as smiles and some waves has grown into exaggerated gestures, small dances and blown kisses. Daily commuters look forward to seeing her and have taken to social media to praise her sunny welcome.

You can check out her cheery traffic direction below.

Have you ever been stopped by a traffic controller with style?

    So cute! I love it!

  2. Very nice indeed! Though if I hadn’t heard of this lady I might be distracted by the dancing!

    There was, at one stage, a train driver in my area who would chat and sing to his passengers as he drove. I think he made it into the Age once,

    • Haha, so true, Sue! I wonder how many are able to take a moment from their day to not rush and enjoy her joy?

  3. 😍😍😍

    People like that bring smiles to others each and every day. Especially needed now!


    • The world needs more like her, doesn’t it? I think sometimes people don’t realise how simple it is to do that.

  4. I love people who love their job! Or at least, seem to. Thanks for sharing this.

    • She’s usually a truck driver, but I guess covid has meant less work so she’s doing this as well/instead of for the moment. As directing traffic to me has always seemed quite a monotonous job, it is great that she’s found joy in it.

  5. I’m sure it could get tedious for her. It’s great to see them having fun.

    • I agree completely, Liz. And if her way of having fun and removing the tedium brings others joy , so much the better.
