Safer Public Walkways In Southampton With Luminescent Floor Lighting

Traxeyes : 26 July, 2010  (Application Story)
Southampton city council has illuminated a dangerous walkway in the city using the Traxeyes system of pathway lighting
Safer Public Walkways In Southampton With Luminescent Floor Lighting
Traxeyes has been installed on another Sustrans/Southampton city council project on the river Itchen. This British invention is bridging the gap between electric lighting and public safety. With dark winter nights approaching and the focus switches from budget restraints and CO2 emissions targets, Traxeyes is ticking boxes on all concerns.

Traxeyes takes less than a minute to fit and costs less than 10% of a solar powered alternative but without the maintenance. Traxeyes glow life exceeds ten years without using any toxic or radioactive materials in the manufacturing process, with no need for battery changes or other costly maintenance, designed, and manufactured entirely in the UK, Traxeyes is showing the way in green solutions replacing glare with a reassuring glow.

Dale Bostock (Southampton's cycling officer) commented: 'My dad was rushed into hospital last night - having tests today - on the way home almost 1 a.m. this morning we drove down to Horseshoe Bridge - the creepiest place in the world, had a look at the boardwalk. Amazing alongside the city glow and the lights reflecting off the still water there was a glowing edge to the boardwalk that would still give a line to follow for walkers and cyclists.'

In January Swansea city council fitted Traxeyes Rob Wachowski, Swansea Council's cycling and Walking Officer had to say, after visiting the site along a 4km section of the Clyne Valley cycleway: 'The Traxeyes are installed and performing well with positive feedback from some local users. I've been up and down a few times recently and they are glowing through an inch of snow.'

Traxeyes is being used in over 27 countries at present and the inventor Grant Taylor says 'though initially we received a lot of resistance to even the concept, thanks to clients like English heritage, Norfolk broads and of course Sustrans, Traxeyes is becoming an essential part of health and safety guidelines'
