EMERGENCY LIGHTING IN ROAD TUNNELS
|Publication Date:||1 January 2010|
In 2003, CIE decided to start a new Technical Committee TC4-43 dedicated to emergency lighting in road tunnels. There was at that time no specific document on this important topic at CIE level. A group of experts was formed in order to produce a new set of recommendations that will help national standardization bodies to build their own national standards. They will find in this report some useful ideas as well as the common denominator of the practice in several countries.
Tunnel emergency lighting may be subject to legal requirements set out in some Regional and National directives and regulations. Such requirements may differ from the recommendations of this report, and take priority over them. Before following the recommendations of the report in a particular location, the existence of any relevant legal requirements should be investigated.
