Sustainability Approach

For “Parque Lineal Ferrocarril De Cuernavaca“ all lamps were specified because of their high CRI (Color Rendering Index), long life and high efficacy. All Luminaries used chromatic correction and glare protection accesories to prevent luminous pollution.
A carefully planned schedule and control system allows flexibility for lighting daily city life.
Optimum lighting levels have extended the use of the public area to night time. This helps to revitalize the corridor, sports and contemplation areas, provide public nightspots for social gatherings and cultural and recreational activities.
Lastly, it has significantly increased the security and protection of the citizens of the neighborhood and its surroundings, besaid has renewed our sense of the city as well as the pride and strength of the México City Community.
