HAMILTON RING ROAD - Lighting the new 4-laning efficiently

The 4-laning of Wairere Drive from Te Rapa to Ruakura Road and it's planned extension to rejoin SH1 on Cobham Road is part of the Access Hamilton Project, planning for the long-term transport needs of the city.

Providing effective lighting whilst minimising expense was achieved through optimising the use of different lamp technologies.


High Pressure Sodium (yellow light) was used for clearway sections and Ceramic Metal Halide provided white light to highlight intersections, roundabouts, cycleways and pedestrian crossings.

Kaos highway lighting luminaires fitted with a mix of High Pressure Sodium, Ceramic Metal Halide and CosmoPolis lamp technologies are used on the 4-laning of the Hamilton Ring Road.
