C4: Cycling even during the hours of darkness – nature-friendly lighting systems
Lighting devices are an important factor for cycling facilities to be fit for everyday use, in particular for high-speed cycling links and direct cycle routes. In particular on links outside of built-up areas and on sections with little development, lighting is still a pie in the sky. To be able to illuminate cycling links in rural areas, solutions are needed that take into account nature conservation and species protection requirements – e.g. adaptive lighting that only illuminates sections being used by pedestrians or cyclists. In Germany, initial lessons have been learned and recommendations derived from pilot projects, which will be presented by the speakers.
