Tram line in the center of the street compelled to use thick poles, able to bear the load of contact wires. As a result, 9 meter lighting poles of custom design, with functional street light atop and Zumtobel Supersystem amidst, appeared on Lesnaya street. Road lighting became more uniform, while facades from second floor and upper vanish in the dark.
Along the both sides of the side streets decorative pole-top was placed at 4 meter high poles, making bright and uniform lighting at low levels and keeping the upper hemisphere almost unlit. In pedestrian zone park style fixtures were placed to mark it with special and solemn look.
