Holland Trials LED Pavement Strips

A Dutch town is trialling an innovative way of ensuring pedestrians know when it’s safe to cross the road, even if they’re too busy staring down at the screen of their smartphone.

According to reports, a scheme has been introduced in Bodegraven, whereby LED strips have been installed in the pavements next to pedestrian crossings.

These LED light strips shine green when it is safe to cross, red when there is traffic in the road and they flash when the lights are about to change.

So far, they have only been fitted at intersections near schools, but there is talk about extending their use to other parts of the road network.

Dutch councillor Kees Oksam said that mobile phones, and specifically smartphones, have been the main driver of the scheme.

“The attraction of social media, games, WhatsApp and music is great and comes at the expense of attention to traffic,” the councillor stated, adding that while the government cannot reverse the trend in increased mobile phone usage, it can anticipate it, and the likely consequences.

Many local authorities in the UK already use LED street lights, with Milton Keynes council recently revealing that it has been able to reduce its carbon footprint by changing to this technology for its street lights, the Milton Keynes Citizen reported.

The council estimates that it’s saved 150,000kWh of electricity in a year - the equivalent amount used by 235 three-bed households.

Growing use of LEDs in various aspects of life, such as street lighting, could give the sector a further boost.
