Road tunnel lighting is an important subject and design of the lighting is done based on certain parameters like, max speed allowed, stopping distance, volume of the tunnel, external luminance and topography of the tunnel etc ..

Standards followed while designing is based on CIE 88:2004,ANSI/IES RP22-11, and in India it is widely followed with the general guidelines of IRC SP 91:2010 , IRC SP87:2013.
