Tunnel lighting criteriaGood tunnel lighting allows users to enter, pass throughand exit the enclosed section safely and comfortablyThe 5 zones of tunnellightingCIE guidance (CIE 88-1990)states that the amount of lightrequired within a tunnel isdependent on the level of lightoutside and on the point insidethe tunnel at which visualadaptation of the user mustoccur.When planning the lighting of atunnel, there are 5 key areas toconsider:1 Access zoneNot within the tunnel itself, this isthe stretch of road leading to itsentrance.From this zone, drivers must beable to see into the tunnel inorder to detect possible obstaclesand to drive into the tunnelwithout reducing speed.The driver’s capacity to adapt inthe access zone governs thelighting level in the next part ofthe tunnel. One of the methodsused by CIE to calculate visualadaptation is the L 20 method,which considers the averageluminance from environment, skyand road in a visual cone of20°, centred on the line of sightof the driver from the beginningof the access zone (see below).2 Threshold zoneThis zone is equal in length to the‘stopping distance’. In the firstpart of this zone, the requiredluminance must remain constantand is linked to the outsideluminance (L 20 ) and trafficconditions. At the end of thezone, the luminance levelprovided can be quickly reducedto 40% of the initial value.3 Transition zoneOver the distance of thetransition zone, luminance isreduced progressively to reachthe level required in the interiorzone. The reduction stages mustnot exceed a ratio of 1:3 as theyare linked to the capacity of thehuman eye to adapt to theenvironment and, thus, timerelated.The end of the transitionzone is reached when theluminance is equal to 3 times theinterior level.4 Interior zoneThis is the area betweentransition and exit zones, oftenthe longest stretch of tunnel.Lighting levels are linked to thespeed and density of traffic, asoutlined in the table below.Luminance to be maintainedin interior zoneExtra urban, low traffic,low speed (70km/h) 2 to 6cd/m 2Highway 4 to10cd/m 2Urban 4 to10cd/m 25 Exit zoneThe part of the tunnel betweeninterior zone and portal. In thiszone, during the day time, thevision of a driver approachingthe exit is influenced bybrightness outside the tunnel.The human eye can adapt itselfalmost instantly from low to highlight levels, thus the processesmentioned when entering thetunnel are not reversed.However, reinforced lighting maybe required in some cases wherecontrast is needed in front of orbehind the driver when the exit isnot visible, or when the exit actsas entrance in case of emergencyor maintenance works where partof a twin tunnel may be closed.The length is a maximum 50mand the light level 5 times theinterior zone level.Visual adjustmentThe visual adjustment from highluminance to low luminancewhile driving is notinstantaneous.This is cause of 2disability phenomena:20 ° 10 °AStopping distance2. Temporal adaptation: humaneyes need more time to adaptfrom brightness to darkness thanthe reverse. During this period ofadaptation, the distance travelledis a critical factor.1 Access zoneL 20(outside luminance)Lth(thresholdluminance)2 Threshold zone1. Spatial adaptation: the largedifference in luminance betweenthe outside and the inside of thetunnel will impede the vision ofthe driver when he is at theadaptation point (‘A’, opposite).The “Black Hole” phenomenonengenders a feeling ofdiscomfort and insecurity.StoppingpointAdaptationpointStoppingdistance (SD)APortal4Direction of travel


DefinitionsAccess zone luminance L 20The average value of the luminance in a 20°cone of the driver’s visual field from theaccess zone and centred on the tunnelentrance.Contrast revealing coefficient qcThe ratio between the luminance at the roadsurface and the vertical illuminance Ev at aspecific location in the tunnel qc=L/Ev. Themethod of tunnel lighting may be defined interms of the contrast ratio in three ways:symmetric lighting, counterbeam lighting andpro-beam lighting (see pages 6 - 7).Entrance and exit portalsThe entrance portal of the tunnel is the partof the tunnel construction that corresponds tothe beginning of the covered part of thetunnel, or - when open sun-screens are used -to the beginning of the sun-screens. The exitportal corresponds to the end of the coveredpart of the tunnel, or - when open sunscreensare used - to the end of the sunscreens.Exit zoneThe exit zone is the part of the tunnel where,during the daytime, the vision of a driverapproaching the exit is predominatelyinfluenced by the brightness outside thetunnel. The exit zone begins at the end ofthe interior zone. It ends at the tunnel’s exitportal.Interior zone luminance (L in )The average luminance in the interior zonewhich constitutes the background fieldagainst which objects will be visible tousers.Parting zoneThe parting zone is the first part of the openroad directly after the exit. The parting zoneis not a part of the tunnel but it is closelyrelated to the tunnel lighting. It is advisedthat the length of the parting zone equalstwo times the stopping distance. A length ofmore than 200m is not necessary.Stopping point (SP)The position within the access zone on theapproach road at a distance equal to thestopping distance (SD) from the tunnelentrance.Stopping distance (SD)The theoretical forward distance required bya driver at a given speed in order to stopwhen faced with an unexpected hazard onthe carriageway.This takes into account perception andreaction time as well as road surface.Threshold zone luminance (L th )The average luminance in the threshold zonewhich constitutes the background fieldagainst which objects will be visible todrivers in the access zone between thestopping point and adaptation point.Traffic flowThe number of vehicles passing a specificpoint in a stated time in stated direction(s).In tunnel design, peak hour traffic, vehiclesper hour per lane, will be used.Transition zone luminance (L tr )The average luminance in the transitionzone which constitutes the background fieldagainst which objects will be visible to drivers.Veiling luminanceThe overall luminance veil consisting of thecontribution of the transient adaptation andstray light from optical media, from theatmosphere and from the vehicle windscreen.4 Interior zone zone5 ExitLtr(transitionluminance)Lin(interior luminance)Lex(exit luminance)PortalParting zone2 x SD5


Types of tunnel lightingTunnel road lighting must provide comfort and safety andmaximise the visual performance of users.Symmetrical andasymmetrical lightingUsed generally for transition andinterior zones for long tunnels,and in short tunnels, or lowspeed tunnels for all zones.Asymmetrical lighting can alsobe a means of reinforcing theluminance level in one waytunnels.Asymmetric counter beamlightingTo reinforce the luminance leveland at the same time accentuatethe negative contrast of potentialobstacles. Counter beam lightingis achieved with asymmetricallight distribution facing into thetraffic flow, both in the directionof the on coming driver and inthe run of the road. The beamstops sharply at the vertical planepassing through the luminaire.No light is directed with the flowof traffic. This generates negativecontrast and enhances visualadaptation.Pro beam lightingIn some circumstances, positivecontrast must be reinforced,often in the exit zone where theexit is visible. In these cases,asymmetric light distribution isused in the same way as counterbeam but with direction of thetraffic and is called ‘pro beam’.In dual carriage way tunnels,counter beam at entrance canact as pro beam at exit.This technique is notrecommended as the roadluminance is very low, creatingtoo big a disparity between theexit zone and the parting zone.Other factorsAs well as the above, furtherfactors must be taken intoconsideration when preparingtunnel lighting. These include theshape of the portal, type anddensity of traffic, traffic signage,contribution of wall luminance,orientation of tunnel, and manyothers.

Thorn expertise - creating thebest tunnel lighting and visibilityOur in-house developmentprogrammes employ specialisedsoftware that helps producehighly engineered optics, tooptimise lighting systems and toallow our lighting engineers toprovide maximum safety andcomfort for tunnel users.Lighting a tunnel is a complexand specialised task. Thorn hasdeveloped dedicated lightingsystems and services to assistplanners from concept toimplementation, managementand servicing.While luminance levels are usedfor accurate theoreticalassessment, in practice,illuminance is more often used.Thorn assessment studies,therefore, are executed usingluminance values, with resultspresented as illuminance values.It is commonly accepted in roadlighting that, even with the mostaccurate calculations andmodelling to give the lightinglevels required by the moststringent standards, there is asubstantial difference betweenwhat the mathematical lightingconditions are, and what eachindividual driver subjectively seesin reality. This is especially truefor tunnel lighting, where suchsharp contrasts in light levelsprevail.Thorn in-house visibilitymodelling softwareAt Thorn we have addressed thisproblem head on. Continuousresearch and development hasled to more sophisticated anddetailed understanding of lightingand its effects on vision. Alongwith rapid advances in IT, thishas allowed us to developdedicated in-house softwarewhich combines mathematicalmodels of physiological stimuliwith conventional lightingmodelling parameters to generateresults which are, visually, as wellas mathematically, accuratebeyond alternative visualmodelling techniques.Thanks to an impressive numberof variables, our software is aunique and accurate tool. Itverifies the ability of a givenlighting system to meet the visualcriteria set by all national andinternational standards regardingdetection of obstacles on theroad, within the allocated time.Thorn software measures anticipated lightfalling on a series of facets, in order tocalculate luminance gradients on targetobjects.Helping lighting designersand tunnel usersTaking into account criteria fromthe tunnel exterior and interior,the software generates a table ofvisibility levels (VL) that shows theextreme influence of daylight onthe values of VL on targets in theentrance and threshold zones ofthe tunnel.Experiments demonstrate that theminimum Level of Visibility (VL)should have a value equal to orgreater than 7 to ensuredetection of planar or sphericaltargets. Though in Thorn’s currentcalculations, the target size maynot exactly represent a potentialobstacle in a tunnel, they showthe behaviour of light on real,multifaceted objects whosediffuse reflectance can bemodified and therefore theyrepresent a real visual scenariofor tunnel users.The design of the lighting systemneeded for a tunnel is the job ofexperienced designers whodefine the scheme, the choice ofthe lighting system, the type andnumber of luminaires and theirappropriate light distribution.Thorn’s visibility softwareprovides invaluable new inputinto the design of optics fortunnel fittings making it easier fordesigners to create lightingsystems and light distributionschemes for tunnels that maximisethe visual performance andcomfort of users.Thorn visibility modelling software indicates the ‘real’ visibility of objects asperceived by the tunnel user, as well as the mathematically calculated levelsrequired to meet the relevant standards.10


Controlling tunnel lightingFor the light-critical approachareas and interiors of tunnels,close control of light levels isessential. Levels of lightoutside the tunnel, time ofday, speed and density oftraffic, all influence the lightingrequirements within.

Tough luminaires for tough environmentsSalts, sulphur pollutants, exhaust fumes consisting ofhydrocarbons and organics in tunnels can result inthe presence of sulphuric or nitric acid.Impact resistance testingOptic designPhotometric measurementAssembly and quality controlWater ingress protection testingCorrosion testingGear testingIn any given tunnel environment,there may be moisture, salts,sulphur pollutants, exhaust fumesconsisting of hydrocarbons andorganics, fuels and oils, soot,dust and strong washingdetergents from jet cleaning.Furthermore, analysis of watersamples identifies the followingcompounds: toluene, sulphate,zinc, sulphide, molybdenum,cadmium, beryllium and mercury.Clearly some of these compoundsare the result of corrosionproducts. Sodium chloride andother chlorides used for road deicingcan add to the chemicalcocktail.Depending on the region (marineatmospheres or long mountaintunnels, for instance), thesechemical combinations can resultin the presence of sulphuric ornitric acid!Luminaires installed in suchenvironments can get rapidlycontaminated. There is no rainfallto wash away the deposits thatsettle, condense or get splashedon their surfaces. Regularmaintenance can alleviate theconditions, but, in general, this isusually impractical due to thelogistics of access, tunnel closureand cost.In such hostile environments, itis vital to choose designs andmaterials that create luminaireswhose function and effectivenesswill not be compromised.Thorn’s tunnel luminaire rangesare designed to withstand ‘tunnellife’ and are made of the highestquality materials, integrating thelatest developments in terms ofingress protection, shock andvibration resistance as well as arange of features to facilitateease of access and maintenance.12
