Uurainen, with less than 3,800 inhabitants, is a small rural village in the Jyväskylä region that has grown strongly for many years. In the 2010s, no village schools have been closed in Uurainen. In the village of Kangashäkki in 2017, new school was completed, which has already been expanded in 2019.
Next to the school is the busy Uuraistentie. "There was a lack of adequate lighting at the school and the crossing of the road was not safe." said Jouko Nykänen, Uurainen's director of basic services. An pedestrian crossing was built and a brightening C2 SmartWalk lighting solution was installed. "It improves road safety in the evening and at night."
