The achievements of modern surface engineering can be applied in many areas. With modern engineering materials and manufacturing techniques, the comfort and safety of life of road users and other people present on the road have substantially improved. The road infrastructure includes street lighting, which uses modern lightweight materials from the group of non-ferrous materials or composites. Their surface is covered by various surface layers in order to improve functional properties of the finished part. This paper presents an analysis of the structure and functional properties of coatings used for street lighting columns, which have recently become very popular.Keywords: Surface engineering, coatings, lighting columns
