Core Lighting Requirements

The transport infrastructure of a country has been described as the backbone of the economy. It is much more than asphalt, concrete or steel; providing connections for people and goods, access to jobs and services, and enabling trade and economic growth. Good lighting promotes visual clarity and comfort when we use a transport application. Most importantly effective illumination makes us feel safe and secure.

Designplan have significant experience illuminating transport environments. Not least in the rail sector where recent projects include Crossrail (Elizabeth Line), Doha Metro, Edinburgh Gateway, London Bridge and Copenhagen Metro. Like Network Rail we believe there are 4Cs crucial for lighting rail applications. They are:

  • Capacity
  • Carbon
  • Customer
  • Cost
