According to Indian media reports, India Delhi Metro has taken the lead in changing the lighting systems of the first and second phases of the 126 subway stations from traditional lights to modern LED lighting systems.
It is worth noting that several subway stations have received many complaints about “black lighting areas”, and crimes such as robbery and sexual harassment are often reported in those places.
Delhi Metro has used LED lighting extensively since the third phase of the subway station to save energy and promote renewable energy.
“All sites in Phases 1 and 2 are equipped with traditional fluorescent lights during commissioning. However, with the advent of modern LED lighting concepts, existing lighting systems are being gradually replaced by LED lighting.”
A spokesman for the Delhi Metro Company said that the bidding process would take about six months, and then LED lighting is expected to cover all of these stations within a year.
He added that at present, LED lighting renovation work for 10 subway stations is underway and may be completed within the next 2-3 months.
Previously, the Delhi Metro carried out demonstrations of changing traditional luminaires to modern LED luminaires at two subway stations, Rajiv Chowk and Barakhamba Road.
