LED Lights on Capital’s Salam Street

The newly-opened Salam Street surface roads has been installed with LED lighting system to reduce power consumption and decrease carbon emissions.

The Abu Dhabi Municipality has completed the installation and commissioning of 50 traffic signal poles fitted with 206 bulbs, and 120 decorative street lighting poles fitted with LED lighting system along the completed surface roads.

The LED system ensures lighting over extended periods with minimal maintenance requirements and reduces power consumption to the least possible level, thus contributing to minimising carbon dioxide emissions and conserving the environment.

Abdullah Saeed Al Shamsi, Acting Executive Director of Municipal Infrastructure and Assets Sector at the municipality, said the central lighting system of Salam Street was aimed to conform to the highest standards of safety and security for road users including the use of the most sophisticated lighting system in the globe.

The LED system enables control of the lighting levels by adjusting it if necessary. It is linked to the power supply system as a backup for the automatic lighting system in case of emergency in a way ensuring uninterrupted lighting of the tunnels of Salam Street, Al Shamsi said.

The system, which also provides automatic monitoring of traffic movement, includes many subsystems for controlling and monitoring the tunnel lighting, fire fighting, smoke discharge, temperature level, and toxic gases in addition to offering information related to types of vehicles, vehicular speed, and intensity of traffic movement, he said.

The features of the LED system enable better control of the light compared to the conventional luminaries, which will result in less light spill and uniform distribution of light on targeted areas.

The tunnel lighting is fully dimmable. In accordance with the external lighting levels, the internal tunnel lighting will be dimmed automatically to ensure a smooth transition for drivers going in or out of the tunnel.

Upon completion of the project, the street will have a capacity to handle 12,000 vehicles per hour in both directions  which will ensure smooth traffic flow by offering an alternative that will bypass the light signals of Salam Street in a non-stop journey across Abu Dhabi Island from Shaikh Zayed Bridge up to Mina.
