Street lighting improvement work

Published 23 June 2017

Older columns will be replaced with latest technology including LED lights.

What will happen

We have identified key areas of the county that have lighting columns coming to the end of their structural life. These units are being replaced with additional funding from the Department of Transport (DFT).  We will be using the newest technology including LED lights. 

The new street lights will operate more efficiently, save energy, need less maintenance and reduce costs in the long term.

Where will the lights be installed?

The schedule for works can be downloaded here (xlsx format)

You can also download the letter sent to residents here (pdf format) within two to four weeks of the work starting.

How will the lights be replaced?

Where required we will not only be replacing the lighting unit but the column itself. We are not planning to move any columns.  To keep disruption to a minimum, we will fill holes and remove barriers by the end of each day.

Each column replacement may take between 4-5 hours to remove the old column, install the new and get it connected.

Parking restrictions

In many areas we may need to suspend parking while works are carried out. We ask you to cooperate and keep clear of lighting columns to allow our gangs to work quickly.

Notifying you about changes

We will ensure any changes are updated here so you are clear on what is happening. We have contacted your local councillors to ensure they are clear about our plans ahead of the programme being developed.
