Aire de Chazey A42, APRR deploys LuminoKrom luminescent paint 04 April 2021
Between Lyon and Ambérieu-en-Bugey on the A42 Chazey area, APRR deploys the LuminoKrom Photoluminescent paint
APRR is deploying LuminoKrom luminescent paint on the Chazey area on the A42 between Lyon and Ambérieu-en-Bugey to enhance the visibility and safety of pedestrian movements at night. The site was carried out by teams from the Eiffage – AER Group. Luminescent paint has been applied to the concrete edges to ensure pedestrian access at night. Truck parking space marking was also carried out to promote parking (in particular maneuvering in reverse) at night.
This LuminoKrom photoluminescent paint was designed as part of ADEME’s “Road to the Future” program to create the infrastructures of tomorrow: safer, more economical, more eco-sustainable. LuminoKrom® luminous paint harnesses renewable energy from solar radiation. An inexhaustible source of energy, clean and without impact on greenhouse gases.
LuminoKrom® paint naturally captures sunlight during the day and restores it as luminosity all night long. Thus, without any consumption of electricity or CO2 emissions, dangerous areas such as baffles, roundabouts, … The LuminoKrom marking was labeled by the Roads and Streets Innovation Committee in 2019 and nominated for the Safety Innovation Prize Road in 2020.
