PLG09 ENSURING VISIBILITY WITHIN SHORT TUNNELS

PLG09 ENSURING VISIBILITY WITHIN SHORT TUNNELS

British Standard BS5489-2: 2016 Code of practice for the design of road lighting, Lighting of tunnels, is the go-to Standard that defines and advises the lighting requirements in road tunnels. However, when is a tunnel not a tunnel? When it’s a short tunnel!. BS5489-2 defines a tunnel as being over 150m in length, but with motorway widening and other infrastructure projects, many highway bridges do not meet the full tunnel lighting requirements but need consideration for all road user groups. This is where PLG09 could be used.

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.
