This street repair project included a replacement of the lighting, which is meanwhile completed. For some time the performance of the new LED system and the old installation could be directly compared. I must say, and the photo certainly confirms this, that the new LED lights clearly beat the old HPS stuff (in fact it was not that old, some post-1990 gear with tubular lamps): White light, lighting level raised, light distribution at least not worse than on the old system.

Nice comparison. Let's hope the new LED lanterns will last for some years.
Actually the light distribution could be even better - looks like the new lanterns are on significantly higher poles.

Looks like more light, but we dont know the poewr. GDR lighting (from what i seen from many of your posts) used to be low power generally - And this might still be relatively low power with the HPS installation, and then the LED installation was put there to raise Lm levels according to some new standard

You don`t realise the effects of LED until you see it from above like this!, the sharp colour cut off, (from HPS to LED), on that corner is amazing!

I think one of the things helping this install the most is that the LED fixtures are mounted at a decent height from the road helping the light distribution . Can't be that good for the eyes though

Just how much glare is there from the fixtures at street level though.? That's not evident from the picture.

It is almost guaranteed to be bad glare. As with any bright white source, black sky + bright white is glare
