We're converting all street lights in the city to energy-efficient LED lighting
The Council owns 38,000 street lights across our road network.
It is our intention to have all these lights upgraded to modern LEDs by 30 September 2021.
As of June 2021 the project has replaced over 28,000 lights with 1037 remaining to be upgraded to LED.
You can see the areas where we are currently working(external link) and the percentage of main road lights completed below.
With the main road lighting, some lights will need to be set to their design wattage through the smart control network after being installed. This will mean lights will run brighter for a few days. This has been done to minimise the different lights needed, allowing for cost savings through bulk purchasing.
