Street lighting: including lighting poles spacing, lighting levels (lux) and uniformity calculations, feeder pillars configuration with all related breakers, photocell controllers, earth pits for feeder pillars and lighting poles, and the interconnecting cabling with proper selection of the cables cross-sections and voltage drop calculations to ensure that permissible voltage drop limits are not exceeded.
Utilities infrastructure network: comprising underground concrete-encased duct banks for Medium Voltage (MV), Low Voltage (LV) and telecom/broadband networks complete with manholes and hand holes in addition to branching to surrounding lots.
Traffic signals: including positioning of various traffic signals heads to suit the different type of intersections and traffic flow with all loop detectors, phasing scheme and traffic controllers.
