What is Category 1 lighting? Can you direct us to/provide the documentation that explains what the different Categories mean?

Where do you propose to put the lighting?


City Council response

Street lighting is proposed on the northern side of the road, categories of street lighting are as defined in the Australian/New Zealand road lighting standard ASNZS1158.

I have included a copy of the table from the standard describing the various categories for vehicular traffic known as category V.

The most likely category to be used in this situation is category V3 which is suitable for an urban street with a 50km/hr limit and carrying the volumes of traffic expected on Westchester Drive.

The final category will be determined from detailed design.

A copy of the standard can be found the NZ Standards website or is available in the Public library.
