This document updates and supersedes Technical report 26 Painting of Lighting Columns. Lighting columns, sign posts and the like are classified as minor structure in Design Manual for Roads and Bridges so it only seems fitting that the revision should reflect this change.

This document will be of use to all those considering improving or constructing minor structures such as lighting columns, sign posts, cctv columns and masts on roads, car parks, rail, docks, harbours and airports. In fact, it’s a document that can be used in a wide range of similar situations for public sector, retail, commercial and leisure industries.

PLG26 is a vital publication aimed at civil engineers, exterior lighting professionals, asset managers, contractors, professionals, designers and manufacturers. It provides a comprehensive and impartial guidance on a wide range of corrosion protective systems, their preparation, application and maintenance.

The ILP seeks to be as inclusive as possible, so if you have any concerns about applying for membership / attending our Exterior Lighting Diploma courses, LDC local events or our one-day courses for whatever reason please let us know and we will try to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that you can fully engage with the ILP.
