LIGHTING ROADS AND MAJOR THOROUGHFARES

This is lighting by modern lights with built-in high-pressure sodium bulbs, while certain sections are also equipped with adjustable lighting. Thus the level of lighting is adapted according to the density of traffic and weather conditions. In this way, we save energy and the environmental impact is reduced due to a reduction in reflected light.
