Does anyone notice the lights on the CTE tunnel is kinda dim than usual?? Been observing it for the past week during the night, only this certain section of the tunnel is dim. Thought they were carrying out maintenance work, but after nearly a week, remains dim than usual.

i think the dim lighting is to preserve your night vision..esp at night..

Economy no good, govt needs to save on electricity. Besides Govt is not make enuff from COE.

Unless you want GST to be 10%, then CTE will be brightly lighted.

Maybe it is to ensure we do not get blinded by darkness once we exit the tunnel at night?

Going by this logic, then the tunnels should be brightly lit at daytime, and toned down when it gets dark?

Why do you think they have the stretch of orange lights when you enter the tunnels during the day???

May I suggest that you sent an email to LTA and keep them posted. Who knows, they might not be aware at all. Also, ask them for a reply.

Hmm, which tunnel got orange lights? Underpass I know have.

Whether it is tunnel or underpass, what I am wondering is whether two sets of lights are used: the bright ones during daytime (so that drivers do not get blinded by the sun when exiting the tunnel), and the dim ones at night (so that drivers can still see in the dark after exiting the tunnel).

CTE, KPE, they all have the orange lights. LTA is quite smart though. In areas where light gradually decreases, they don't use it.

They don't need to brighten the lights during the day as by nature of it being a tunnel, the brightness increases as you reach the end of the tunnel, and the eye's reaction to brighter "lights" is quick. On the other hand the eye's reaction to darkness is more gradual.

Anyone noticed at night the streets in some areas tens to be darker now? Like the lights from street lamps are weaker? I observe that at some stretches of the SLE esp towards BKE. I notice that there are a lot of trees there so wondering if the leaves are blocking some of the light and hence the road seem darker.

But anyone else noticed this? Or am I too sensitive?

Maybe you are getting older and eye sight not as sharp as before? Nowadays if i drive at night, i find the street lights not as sharp as last time. Lol.

Confirmed due to ageing la. As we grow older, we really see things not as sharp and clear as before, even you are wearing your glasses esp at night.  [sweatdrop]

Got no picture or video and which stretch of the expressway are you talking about? If you want to talk about such things you need to be specific. Else nobody will know what you are talking about.
 

 

Just like I tell you I just saw a very chio charbor. Got hair got eyes got nose got mouth. W/o a pic might as well don't mention at all.
