UK first as TfL installs eco-lighting in London road tunnel
Plant Engineer reported


The Upper Thames Street westbound tunnel is now entirely lit with low energy, long-life luminaries, which, according to TfL, have also been designed to improve visibility for cyclists and motorists, to boost safety.

Dana Skelley, director of roads at TfL and chair of the UK Lighting Board, says that the lights will also cut CO2 emissions by more than 60%, compared with conventional systems – contributing towards the Mayor of London Boris Johnson's target of a 60% reduction in the capital's CO2 emissions by 2025.
