SAILOR BAR AND SADDLE ROCK TUNNELS, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA

The Sailor Bar and Saddle Rock tunnels are an integral part of the Trans-Canada Highway, which winds through the Fraser Canyon. The Sailor Bar Tunnel spans a length of 292 meters, while the Saddle Rock Tunnel covers 146 meters.  They are part of a suite of seven short tunnels located between the towns of Boston Bar and Yale.

As part of a lighting system replacement project, Nyx Hemera Technologies’ cutting-edge lighting control system, known as TLACS-U, now oversees the illumination in Sailor Bar Tunnel, where 118 luminaires have been integrated, as well as in Saddle Rock Tunnel, featuring 83 luminaires.

These tunnels, each accommodating two lines of traffic, have been equipped with LCAM photometers. These sophisticated sensors continuously assess the ambient luminance outside the tunnels and make real-time adjustments to the tunnel lighting for enhanced safety. To ensure a seamless transition into the tunnels, TLACS-U also manages four approach street luminaires strategically positioned just before the entrances of the four tunnel portals.

This upgrade not only enhances the safety and efficiency of these vital passages but also underscores our commitment to innovative solutions in transportation infrastructure.
