Recent upgrades to the M62 between the J22 and J25 have ensured that this stretch of British motorway is absolutely futureproofed, thanks to LED Lighting. 1224 high pressure sodium lanterns were replaced as part of efforts to cut down on the C02 produced by the council, as well as cutting down on the long-documented complaints of light and noise pollution which is associated with the older system.

Unlike fuzzing older lighting, but LED Rope Lights and LED strip Lights as well as LED Bulbs made absolutely no noise whatsoever, meaning that for roads which are close to housing, there is no possibility of the noise keeping people awake. The noise of faint buzzing might sound quite laughable, but when you think of a large number of lights, it seriously becomes no laughing matter. This in turn should allow home owners’ property values to snake back up.

Where this motorway gets really cool is the introduction of a central management system, which remotely manipulates burn hours of the lighting, as well as control over the timing of the dimmed lighting when there is very minimal traffic, and furthermore, it also tracks systems for fault monitoring and can provide a live marker of energy consumption – so in the event of things ever going wrong, investigators will be able to investigate without any strain – as they wish – light by light or even throughout the entire network.

The benefits of this work and work very alike it are not just for the now, and the British government’s stance upon making roads energy efficient should be commended. Very much the backbone of the nation at large, dual carriageways and motorways need to be looked after, and implementing LED Lighting is a fantastic investment in British infrastructure – one that rewards the planet, the user, and also the council involved thanks to the substantial savings upon yearly energy bills there are to be had.
