So, you’re taking on a huge lighting project on a busy motorway or highway that witnesses significant amounts of traffic every day. You know the stakes are high and want to ensure you meet every technical requirement whilst ensuring road-user safety. How can we help you?

Getting on the road to success

Strategic infrastructure projects (any large-scale work completed on major roads, rail networks or transport interchanges) are much more complicated and require far more coordination than your usual lighting installation.

Whether you’re revamping an existing set of lights or grappling with entirely new sections of road or railway, your installation must meet the strictest of technical requirements — something that requires expertise. This is where DFL comes in.

Put us in the driving seat

Whilst we love a creative project as much as the next lighting consultant, our teams have spent years working on complex highway lighting installations and have the knowledge required to tick every single document and report off your to-do list.

For instance, to ensure your strategic infrastructure project’s up to scratch, we’ll ensure your highway lighting scheme complies with recommendations outlined in key lighting guidelines, including:

  • BS 5489-1:2020 — Design of road lighting: Lighting of roads and public amenity areas.
  • Code of Practice — The Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB).
  • TD 501 — Road lighting design.

We’re also around to provide any design-related support where needed, even if it doesn’t fall into the usual lighting consultant’s remit.

Our teams are well-positioned to support larger organisations with their strategic infrastructure development plans, having supported numerous revamps and from-scratch schemes for National Highways and Transport for London (TfL). And we’d love to help with your upcoming project!
