There are many options for illuminating pedestrian bridges. Two completely different approaches are shown here. The bridge measures 20 x 2.4 m. The illumination standard DIN EN 13 201 for pedestrian walkways and cycle paths applies here. The average degree of illuminance required is 5 lx, and the minimum value is 1 lx. Pedestrians and cyclists should feel safe and therefore comfortable on the bridge. In addition, four compact floodlights emphasise the structural features of the bridge, thus increasing the striking effect they make from a distance.
