New LED lighting scheme improves safety and sense of well-being for Therapia Lane

25/11/2013, LED | Project News

 

As part of a regeneration plan, the local council of Croydon aims to revive this bustling city situated in the shadows of its big brother London by providing fast and efficient transport links to make the city a more convenient place to live and work, but also to attract businesses that will deliver much-needed jobs and economic growth and so put Croydon firmly on track for the future.

Within this framework, the local council has a vision to transform the city’s 18½-mile light rail network into a modern rail system offering a first class service to all passengers.

To boost this goal, the city has enhanced Therapia Lane, one of the busiest stops on the route serving a mixture of residential and industrial areas, by converting to a new LED lighting scheme to light the halt. The white light of the Axia and Teceo LED luminaires replaces the orange light provided by the sodium lamps, dramatically:

  • enhancing the feeling of safety
  • improving the colour rendering quality for better visibility and legibility
  • increasing uniformity levels and
  • providing clearer and better quality camera images.


The new lighting also minimises light pollution and significantly reduces energy costs and CO2 emissions; so much that this energy efficient solution has been nominated and shortlisted in the “Low carbon” category of the Lighting Design Awards.

Passengers are delighted with the new lighting scheme which has created a more welcoming and convivial space while waiting for the tram. They feel much more secure and can easily read timetables, purchase tickets, perceive the entrances and exits and move around with great comfort.
The local council now intends to install these Axia and Teceo LED luminaires on all the tram stops on the rail network, creating world class transport hubs designed to offer the very best facilities for customers.
