Public lighting and safety in public spaces
Austria - Municipality of Vienna
Good lightening is needed not only along roads but also along sidewalks, in parks etc, in order to improve the security for women, pedestrians and cyclists in general. In the Resselpark at Karlsplatz in Vienna, all paths and bicycle stands were provided with lighting. A campaign focusing on improving lightening in parks and public spaces was also launched to especially highlight 200 parks in Vienna. Measures to improve safety in underground car parks have also been implemented, by increasing the lightening, visibility of entrances and exits, installing cameras, hiring security staff and providing specific parking spaces for women visible for guards and close to exits and elevators.
