Glenn Innes to Tamaki Drive — prizewinner

The Glenn Innes to Tamaki Drive, in Maori Te Ara Ki Uta Tai (the path of the land and the sea), is a seven-kilometer path that connects Auckland’s city center with the city’s eastern suburbs.

One of the project’s main challenges was to provide lighting that would ensure the safety of users of the shared path while also being sensitive to the local environment. The shared path runs through a scenic coastal area, and it was important that the lighting did not disrupt the area’s natural beauty while still being able to illuminate the 4.6m wide pathway and boardwalk sections for safe passage for pedestrians and cyclists. In addition, the project had to comply with strict environmental regulations, including Dark Sky preservation.

The solution for the illumination of the stage two was the use of 237pcs. of ID2 linear handrail luminaires spaced 10.0m apart in an opposite arrangement. The choice of the ID2 handrail luminaire was driven by the superior optics, heat dissipation, design lifetime, and delivery of safe lighting on the boardwalk without requiring any tilt.
A customised mounting bracket and cover plate were designed to fix the luminaire into a wooden balustrade.

The lighting system supplied helped shape the new shared pathway as a key infrastructure for the Auckland region. The client was delighted with the result as it exceeded expectations, by maintaining a high level of visual comfort, spill light control and uniformity.

The project was recognized for its innovative design and environmental sensitivity, winning the 2022 Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Award of Merit.
