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 June 2021.
The project has replaced practically all residential area lights amounting to nearly 14,000 lights across the city.
We have now turned our attention to the main roads and will be focused on this work for the remainder of this year.
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.
