The Wallonia region of Belgium is due to commence an upgrade of highway lighting from next year on its motorways and equivalent of trunk roads. This will see sodium lighting phased out and replaced with LED. This will result in a significant loss of main road SOX.

In the Flemish region, much motorway lighting has been switched off for several years and existing lighting left to fall into disrepair. So whilst there is probably still a lot of SOX to be seen in the central reservations of their motorways, not a lot of it actually works. Slip roads tend to still be lit down to the main carriageway, but even a few years ago there were efforts to lantern swap or replace ageing columns. Bear in mind Belgium has a huge number of columns from the 1960s and 1970s on its motorways. I have also seen news stories suggesting that the Flemish are of this year also rolling out LED and are no longer relamping with sodium.

With the cutbacks and LEDification in Belgium, SOX is taking a hammering.

In Gibraltar, the column in the background has a SON lamp fitted to the GEC Z9454.
