SIMEX Bangladesh Can Make Your Street Lighting Project Easier In 2022

Street light or street lamp is a good source of light typically mounted on a lamp column or pole either on the side of the road inside the median, or suspended on a wire on top of the road to supply illumination. Street lighting will give safety benefits at midblock and intersection locations and might improve safety for pedestrians, particularly at crossing points.

Street lighting has many important benefits. It can be used to give security in urban areas and to extend the standard of life by artificially extending the hours in which it is light so that activity can occur.

Street lighting also modifies the safety for drivers, riders, and pedestrians. Driving outside of daylight for hours is more dangerous – only a quarter of all travel by car drivers is between the hours of 7 pm and 8 am, yet this period accounts for 40% of fatal and serious injuries to the same group.

Pedestrians and vulnerable road users suffer from diminished visibility also in the dark. For this reason, ways of reducing the risk to all road users during the hours of darkness must be found.

In any area, street lighting has an important role to play in –

  • Reducing risks of nighttime accidents
  • Discouraging crime
  • Assistance in the protection of buildings/property
  • Making a secure environment for habitation
