As in Santaarnpaal`s pic here, we also had the exact same set up on the UK motorways.
On our M62, years ago they were 200watt SLI sodium lamps, so I decided to make one for my 200watt linear!, heres the result.

I’m assuming the gutter is metal. I don’t have any low pressure sodium but it would get rather hot. Don’t see to many low pressure sodium fixtures around in Canada. I’ve seen 4 total and none of them work

That is an interesting fixture, and I might try my hand at making a similar one...

LPS doesn't get all that hot compared to HPS/MV etc. Arc tube temperature is 260°C so external surface temperature will be a lot lower. Not run up our SLI/H for a while, but next time we do we'll make sure to measure the outer temperature.

I always thought that if you ‘ribbed’ the top up sufficiently enough to take the flex out of the guttering, you could run this outdoor like the old, European open LPS lanterns?
