Part of the plan to upgrade traffic schemes by the second quarter of 2014 is to change the traffic lights with halogen bulbs.
Soon Dubai is going to change all traffic lights with halogen bulbs using power-saving technology that will guarantee more protected roads and help the administration to save Dh900,000 each year.
It was also stated that the switch would enhance traffic safety on heavily jam-packed roads and expand solutions for main intersections that observe numerous and recurrent traffic accidents.
The RTA has captured the quantity after checking the effectiveness of the state-of-the-art LED lighting system.
It has the ability to supply lighting for longer time with the least maintenance requirements, as well as lessening power utilization. The emirate is estimated to save Dh900,000 each year by setting up the new units as they will enrich and improve consumption by as much as 55%.
They will also give to environmental preservation and protection by diminishing carbon dioxide emissions.
The life cycle of these units expands to approximately10 years coupled with reduced faults which in turn will boost the level of periodic, preventive and corrective maintenance.
These lights will be obviously noticeable during daytime without being impacted by sun ray reflections on the lenses. That will eventually give to realizing the RTA vision of providing safe and smooth transport to everyone.
