Guide for the Design of Roadway Lighting

This guide is intended to promote uniformity in lighting across Canada by providing guidance in the planning and design of roadway lighting and related outdoor lighting systems. It is divided into two major sections - Fundamentals and Design. Fundamentals (volume 1) contains information on lighting theory, obtrusive light, the planning and design process, standards and codes, calculations and the use of computer software in roadway design and maintenance. Design (volume 2) applies the principles and information presented in the first section to specific facilities that may require lighting, such as roadways, interchanges, intersections, roundabouts and tunnels. Also included are off-road facilities such as pedestrian and bicycle pathways, weigh scales, rest areas and road signs. This section also provides guidelines for streetscapes, temporary roadway lighting and work zone lighting for road construction areas.
