AAPA, with the support of Austroads, is pleased to be able to present this three-day workshop on the latest practices applying to road and public space lighting design and practice. Used to support learning in the workshop is the Austroads’ Guide to Traffic Engineering Practice Part 12 - Roadway Lighting, a general guide to road lighting standards and practice applicable to traffic routes and to a lesser extent, to local collector and minor roads.
This workshop, however, is based on the Australian Standard AS1158-2005 and associated lighting standards. The workshop provides instruction on the basic principles and extends this instruction to lighting design from first principles through to a design completion for straight roads, intersections and bends in traffic routes, plus local roads and other public spaces such as: outdoor carparks; cycle and pedestrian pathways. Reference is included to other elements including subways; footbridges; ramps; steps; and other City and suburban public spaces.
The design and provision of public lighting is often arranged separately from other road improvements. It is therefore important for its design, installation and maintenance to be properly integrated with road design and traffic management practices to enhance the full achievement of traffic and community objectives.
All participants will be provided with a copy of workshop and speakers’ notes. This documentation will be an ongoing useful technical resource for all traffic engineering and planning practitioners that have exposure to road and public space lighting design.
Participants will have access to computer for significant interactive learning and case study use throughout the workshop.
