Local Philips Milewide2s
The Milewide2 is to be found on Derby's 'Castleward' modern urban living estate in the City Centre, which began construction in 2013.
The main roads that pass through the estate, Liversage Street and Castleward Boulevard, feature columns that support two lanterns - one being situated at 10 m and intended for lighting the roadway itself; the other, situated a little lower and positioned over the pavement.
The upper lanterns run 48 LEDs arranged in an 8 × 6 grid.
By comparison, the lower lanterns run 32 LEDs in an 8 × 4 grid.
The columns, lanterns and brackets are finished in the same dark blue that the columns installed for Derby's Street Lighting PFI are finished in.
The LED array occupies only a relatively small portion of the overall lantern area; the curved profile of this being a legacy from the original Milewide lantern, which was designed for use with discharge lamp technology, and featured a curved reflector.
The side streets use shorter columns that match the profile of the main road columns, except that these do not feature a second lantern.
These lanterns are slightly smaller too.
The lanterns can be mounted either side-entry or post-top, although this requires the use of different spigots, owing to the rear profile of the lantern.
Canal Street has undergone complete alteration with the construction of the new properties - click here for images of how it appeared in October 2010.
Miniature photocells provide individual switching to all of the lanterns.
