The central German town Friedberg - where Elvis Presley was stationed as a US soldier in the 1950s - has installed three pedestrian lights with images of the legendary singer.

The red image shows the rock 'n' roll icon striking a pose at a microphone while the green depicts him doing his trademarked hip swivel dance.

They went online this week where Elvis, who died in 1977, was based at the U.S. Army's Ray Barracks from October 1958 to March 1960.

He lived in nearby Bad Nauheim.

Friedberg which is north of Frankfurt, already has an ''Elvis Presley Platz'' -- Elvis Presley Square -- and decided to add the three lights as an added attraction for the many Elvis fans who already make the pilgrimage to the town.
