UK-first LED Lightings in London Road Tunnel

It’s said that TfL (Transport for London) has completed UK-first installation of LED lightings in the Upper Thames Street westbound tunnel to improve visibility for cyclists and motorists to boost safety.

According to Dana Skelley, director of roads at TfL and chair of the UK Lighting Board, the lights will cut CO2 emissions by more than 60%, compared with conventional systems.

In addition, the installation is also good for maintenance costs. Projections show the cost of lighting the tunnel could fall from around £50,000 each year to less than £10,000. She also expects the new lights to last for 20 years rather than  the existing system's two year life span.

Moreover, TfL says it will be "closely monitoring" the LED lighting system over the coming months to validate the new technology as well as investigating other areas for introducing LED lighting technology within the other 12 tunnels on the TfL road network.
