BS EN 12767:2007 Passive safety of support structures for road equipment. Requirements, classification and test methods

Read document description

The severities of accidents for vehicle occupants are affected by the performance of support structures for items of road equipment under impact. Based on safety considerations, these can be made in such a way that they detach or yield under vehicle impact. BS EN 12767:2007 provides a common basis for testing of vehicle impacts with items of road equipment support. BS EN 12767 specifies performance requirements and defines levels in passive safety terms intended to reduce the severity of injury to the occupants of vehicles impacting with the permanent road equipment support structures. Consideration is also given to other traffic and pedestrians. Three energy absorption types are considered and test methods for determining the level of performance under various conditions of impact are given.

BS EN 13201-2:2003 Road lighting. Performance requirements

Read document description

BS EN 13201-2:2003 defines, according to photometric requirements, lighting classes for road lighting aimed at the visual needs of road users, and it considers environmental aspects of road lighting. The lighting classes have been defined with consideration of road lighting standards in the various countries aimed at harmonization of requirements, where possible. The requirements of the lighting classes reflect the category of road user in question or the type of road area.

BS 5489-2:2003+A1:2008 Code of practice for the design of road lighting. Lighting of tunnels

Read document description

Road and traffic conditions in tunnels can differ considerably from those that prevail on the open road. The design of tunnel lighting installations should take these different conditions into account, particularly with regard to traffic safety. The object of installing lighting in a road tunnel is to enable traffic to flow through it with the same speed, degree of safety and comfort as on the approach roads. BS 5489-2:2003 gives recommendations on the design of the lighting of tunnels for motorized and mixed traffic, applicable to all types of road including motorways. It is particularly concerned with those aspects of lighting that relate to traffic safety, such as lighting arrangements, levels and other parameters including daylight. The 2008 amendment contains guidance and recommendations that are intended to support BS EN 13201 and to enable designers of lighting systems to comply with that standard. In particular, it takes account of traffic flow and type of traffic in determining the lighting requirements and of the method of determining the lighting requirements of short tunnels. BS 5489-2 is applicable to electrical and mechanical engineers, lighting engineers, surveyors, road construction planners and workers and those involved in civil engineering and planning. BS 5489-2 supersedes BS 5489-7:1992, which is withdrawn.

BS 5489-1:2003+A2: 2008 Code of practice for the design of road lighting. Lighting of roads and public amenity areas

Read document description

BS 5489-1:2003 gives recommendations on the general principles of road lighting, gives recommendations on aesthetic and technical aspects, and advises on statutory provisions, operation and maintenance. Recommendations ares also given in the following areas: Lighting for all types of highways, public thoroughfares, subways and bridges including those specifically for pedestrians and cyclists; Design of lighting for urban centres and public amenity areas; Lighting around aerodromes, railways, harbours and navigable waterways, in order to minimize the possibility of the lighting interfering with these modes of transport. The 2008 amendment contains guidance and recommendations that are intended to support BS EN 13201 and to enable designers of lighting systems to comply with that standard. BS 5489-2 is applicable to electrical and mechanical engineers, lighting engineers, surveyors, road construction planners and workers and those involved in civil engineering and urban planning.
