Award-winning British technology, Pavegen will light the temporary bridge from West Ham station to the Olympic Park. The walkway will feature 12 energy generating floor tiles. These are expected to receive around 12m impressions and will produce 72m joules of energy. When stepped on, the Pavegen slabs move only 5mm downwards, barely noticeable to pedestrians.
Olympic Delivery Authority transport director, Hugh Sumner said: “The widespread use of energy-efficient technology is one of the main features of London 2012. This foot-powered lighting system for one of the main walkways into the Olympic Park …will really get people thinking about how an individual can make a difference, while getting to and from their events.”
