Lights at Woden Bus Station

Does anyone know what were the red and green lights above platform  9 used for? I think there are on the other platforms but I didn't get a chance to look. There is also a yellow beacon light near the red and green one.

Yes, they are on other platforms. They date back to the days when intertown departures were coordinated with feeder bus arrivals through a basic signalling system.
