Located in Coventry - West Midlands - the Hill Street Footbridge spans the main ring road providing pedestrian access to the town centre.

Chromatica  designed,  manufactured, and installed  purpose built, anti - vandal, surface mounted luminaires. Luminaires utilise ANSI binned, colour matched neutral white High Flux Rebel LED's, coupled with an asymmetric optic system. The optic system ensures the minimum number of luminaires illuminate the bridge decks to the specified levels. This improves vertical illuminance, ensuring good facial recognition, creating a safe and secure environment for users of the bridge late at night.

Low voltage DC power is distributed throughout the bridge mounted conduit system from AC/DC power supplies located in 2 feeder pillars, 1 either side of the road.The ramps, staircase and floodlights used to high light the bridge arch can be independantly dimmed up or down to match illumination levels as necessary.

Working in conjunction with the clients consultant, bridge builder and main contractor, all the necessary  luminaire and conduit fixing points were  put in place during the bridge fabrication, ready for luminaire and conduit installation.

This pre-fabricated approach significantly reduced the installation time and costs, whilst also ensuring the bridges protective paint system remained untouched.
