Local Philips FGS 105s
The FGS 105 was very rare here; as far as I know, examples could only be seen in the Derwent Street/Nottingham Rd underpass, and complemented the ceiling-mounted fluorescent units. As part of Derby's Street Lighting PFI, all of this existing lighting was removed and Philips floodlights running 45 W CPO-TW lamps were attached to the walls instead.
The lanterns ran constantly, as little natural light could enter the underpass due to its construction and length.
