  5. 5. LIGHTING FOR SAFETYLighting Requirements for BridgesBS5489-1:2003, Section 8.2 Lighting for Bridges“Where bridges carry the road system without significant change of gradient or direction it islikely that the lighting system on the bridge approaches can be continued across the bridge”.**If there is no lighting on the adjacent roadway, there is normally no need for lighting on thebridge. An exception is a very long bridge, which may be lit even though the roadway is not lit atother locations.Wadi Laban Bridge, Riyadh Sheik Zayed Bridge, Abu Dhabi LIGHTING UP YOUR BRIDGES Engr. Adolf Reyes, MIES, AILP
  6. 6. LIGHTING FOR SAFETYLighting Requirements for BridgesObjectives of Road Lighting• Enhance Road Traffic Safety & ease of passage for all users• Social Role, help in reducing crime and the fear of crime• Commercial Role, being the gateway to town centers and tourist locations at nightIn general, road lighting should reveal all the features of the road and traffic that are important tothe different types of road user, including pedestrians and police.

  7. 7. LIGHTING FOR SAFETYLighting Requirements for Pedestrian Bridges1. The journey of the pedestrian- sufficient light to enable pedestrians tosee and identify the faces of other users ofthe bridge, a key aspect of lighting toensure feelings of safety. Plashet School Footbridge, London LIGHTING UP YOUR BRIDGES Engr. Adolf Reyes, MIES, AILP
  8. 8. LIGHTING FOR SAFETYLighting Requirements for Pedestrian Bridges2. The views of the structures from the distance- where a footbridge is in a lit area or over a lit road, the illumination on the footbridgeshould be integrated with the surrounding area.

  10. 10. LIGHTING FOR AESTHETICSThe Value of Aesthetics – to define IDENTITY and add VALUEIDENTITY- Gives profile to towns and communities- Communicates a positive image & emphasizes a towns character- Promotes the retention of purchasing power and tourism- Act as a Physical Focal PointVALUE- Increases a communitys competitiveness- Provides impulses for urban development- Improves the quality of a location for industry, commerce and service providers- Increases attractiveness, quality of life and security for residents and visitors LIGHTING UP YOUR BRIDGES Engr. Adolf Reyes, MIES, AILP
  11. 11. LIGHTING FOR AESTHETICSFrequent Objections to Considering Aesthetics1. It automatically adds cost – Value for Money - bridge aesthetics is often associated with increased design and constructioncosts and additional construction time.2. People can’t agree on what looks better (Subjective) - People have agreed for centuries on which paintings look better, whichsymphonies sound better and which buildings are more attractive.

  43. 43. CONCLUSIONTo light or not to light? That is the question.Bridges are structures that connect people, places andgoods from one point to another, the important thingduring the process of crossing it, is the experience itleaves to the user.“Let every man praise the bridge that carries him over” - English Proverb Quotes LIGHTING UP YOUR BRIDGES Engr.
