Data for Electrical Installation

Classification of Average level of illumination


Lighting Installation Type of Road on road surface
Group A1 Important traffic route carrying fast
traffic 30
Group A2 Other main roads carrying a mixed
traffic 15
Group B1 Secondary roads with considerable
traffic 8
Group B2 Secondary road with light traffic 4

Note- Excellent illumination is considered when the distance apart is not more than 8 times
the height of the luminaries. Normal spacing for standard lamps is 50 metres with a
mounting height of 8 metres.
