TFL: LED bulbs used in central London tunnel

Energy saving light bulbs have been used in a UK train tunnel for the first time, according to Transport for London (TFL). 

The Upper Thames Street westbound tunnel in the centre of the capital has been equipped with linear LED bulbs.

Long-life low energy bulbs could help achieve a 60 per cent reduction in energy costs as well as reduce maintenance expenses.

TFL estimates that lighting costs for the tunnel could fall from £50,000 each year to less than £10,000.

Furthermore, the design and colour of the lights have been specially selected to improve visibility for cyclists and motorists.

"The mayor wants London to be firmly at the forefront of new technology used to improve quality of life," commented Kulveer Ranger, the mayor of London's director for environment.

"Not only are these innovative lights cheaper and longer lasting, they will make the tunnel much safer for motorists and cyclists by improving visibility."
