Road & Public Space Lighting Workshop

This two day short course is ideal for those seeking a working understanding on public space lighting design and practice and is suitable for engineers and engineering technologists, project managers and senior supervisors and operations personnel working for federal, state, or local authorities, consultants and contractors.



This instructional design focused workshop covers 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 Road Design Part 6B - Roadside Environment, a general guide to road lighting standards and practice applicable to traffic routes and to a lesser extent, to local collector and minor roads. It is assumed that participants are knowledgeable about lighting terminology that is covered in the workshop. Delegates will be sent rereading so they can become familiar with this terminology.  Additional notes will be provided in the course manual covering sustainability, security and road safety issues not fully covered in the course.  Those who have attended past Lighting Workshops during the last 20 years and need a refresher will find this course ideal.

This workshop, to a large part, is based on the Australian Standard AS/NZS1158-2005 and provides instruction on the basic principles but extends this to lighting design from first principles through to a design completion. AS/NZS1158.3.1 is due for release of a major update in early 2019, and this course will incorporate those changes.

A lighting installations evening coach tour compliments understanding and learning.

Participants will have access to computers for use throughout the workshop for significant interactive learning and case study, using software including Perfectlite. This is a very hands on workshop.
