Street Lighting & Highways

Making journeys safer and smarter

Our many years of experience in the highways and street lighting industries mean that we understand the unique requirements for lighting control, power distribution and electrical safety. Check out the solutions we can offer for Highway networks and street lighting infrastructure.

Lucy Zodion’s highway journey

With over 50 years’ experience designing and manufacturing lighting solutions for highways, Lucy Zodion understands the importance such infrastructure has, which is why we remain one of the top choices for contractors and consultants within the industry. We are an authority on highway electrical systems and we are evolving to anticipate and respond to technical and market needs.

Launching our first photocell in the 1960’s we have led the way in developing smart lighting solutions that make streetlights more intuitive, efficient and easier to manage. Since then, we have introduced a number of products to our street lighting range; from lighting control to power distribution. Our products can be found in about 90% of the lighting columns throughout the UK.

As technology advances, illumination isn’t the only function lighting columns are tasked with. Their ubiquitous position throughout all major UK road networks means lampposts can host more intelligent solutions, beyond simply lighting the way. This is something we are experienced in and are capable to react to; we have been developing connected lighting solutions for the past decade to improve efficiencies and prepare networks for smart initiatives.

Our evolving range is down to a dedication to innovation, driven by our experienced R&D team.  Constantly striving to improve and enhance existing products, our in-house engineers have the knowledge and expertise to develop solutions that meet the dynamic specifications of modern lighting technology. This is confirmed with our ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ status, as chosen by our customers and awarded to us by highways industry body, the HEA, at the HEMSA Awards in 2017. Combine this with a deep understanding of highway lighting and power infrastructure, we are well equipped to deal with the real world requirements highway electrical infrastructure must fulfil.
