Customer Challenge

 

Welcome to Paral•lel Avenue. Once the most theater-dense area in Europe, the Avenue is well known as a nerve center for music, art and entertainment. When parts of the Avenue were renovated to improve the flow of people through the area, some inventive urban lighting was needed.

The right lighting

 

Barcelona is a “smart city”, so the new street lighting had to be integrated with the rest of the city’s IT infrastructure. Montserrat Periel, the metropolitan area architect in charge of the project, created a new urban fixture to link the lighting. He commented: “It is actually a multi-purpose urban element that houses occupancy sensors, traffic cameras, Wi-Fi transceivers and other features”.


To ensure there was sufficient illumination, the optics team fitted the poles with UrbanLink luminaires aimed at the bicycle lane. UrbanLink luminaires were added to the pole’s 2.5 meter arm for traffic lighting.


Every fixture meant for functional lighting is point-to-point controlled by the CityTouch lighting management software, allowing for customizable lighting levels. The improved distribution of light makes the Avenue a comfortable, safe place to travel along.
