It is essential to consult with Road Authorities, Local Councils, lighting engineers, or market experts to determine the specific lux level requirements for a particular location or project. These requirements can vary between different states, territories, and local councils in Australia. Vizona can produce a lighting report to determine the exact lux level requirement for your next lighting project.
