Thousands of Liverpool’s street lights are being replaced in a programme which will produce millions of pounds of savings as well as environmental benefits to the city.
Roads in St Michael’s ward are scheduled to have LED lights installed this week. They are:
Little Parkfield Road
Livingston Drive North
Livingston Drive South
Mossley Hill Drive
St Michael’s Church Road
St Michael’s Close
A total of 578 lights will be installed on these roads and 82 in alleys.
Please note that the schedule is subject to alteration.
• More than 20,000 of the city’s existing yellow sodium lights, which have concrete columns, are being replaced with LED lights on steel columns. So far more than 7,300 lights have been replaced.
The first phase of the programme, which is being delivered by Amey, is scheduled for completion in March and it is estimated that this phase will produce savings to the council of about £275,000.
It is estimated that overall there will be an 82% reduction in energy consumption and there will also be a reduction in carbon emissions of approximately 1400 tonnes in this phase.
On-going maintenance costs will also be reduced by more than £100,000 per year when the programme is completed.
