Lighting hazardous sections of roads in the Moscow region
The Moscow region’s administration places greater emphasis on the modernization of hazardous sections of roads. Progress towards this goal is driven by a series of projects that are being implemented in 2019 as part of the national project “Safe and High-Quality Roads”, which was developed by the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation. The region has been working prolifically on this topic since 2017.
An important aspect of the program is the construction of outdoor lighting lines (LNO) on hazardous sections of roads with a total length of 320 km. Locals are actively involved in the selection of priority areas for road repair, expressing opinions and taking part in voting in social media.
The choice of the supplier of lighting equipment and the contractor for construction and installation works is based on the results of a complicated State bidding process with Mosavtodor State Budget Institution of the Moscow Region acting as a customer. According to the results of this tender in 2019, Svetoservis-Podmoskovye, a regional division of BL GROUP, entered into two major contracts with Mosavtodor. For Svetoservis-Podmoskovye such a success has become a habit. Since 2017, the company has successfully participated in similar tenders.
Under the terms of the contracts, it was required to carry out work on many roads, including sections of the federal highways M-8 "Kholmogory", M-10 "Russia" and M-2 "Crimea", sections of regional roads R-90, R-104, R-112, R-114 and many others. In the north part of the region, the total length of the roads on which the work was performed was 64 km. 1987 OPORA ENGINEERING lighting poles and the same number of GALAD Omega LED luminaires were installed, as well as external lighting control system manufactured by Svetoservice-TM. And in the south part of the region the figures are as follows: 59 km of roads, 1787 lighting poles, and the same number of GALAD Omega LED luminaires.
Our lighting equipment found great acceptance on the market also in other parts of the Moscow region. For example, in the east part OPORA ENGINEERING lighting poles were actively used.
