• 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 7,900 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.

And it is estimated that to date  more than 900 tonnes of carbon has been saved

Overall there will be an 82% reduction in energy consumption. On-going maintenance costs will also be reduced by more than £100,000 per year when the programme is completed.

Amey has also invested in three new MEWPs (mobile elevating work platforms) and 18 tonne crane to assist the team in improving the core maintenance service, as well as continue their work in helping the city council deliver  the street lighting upgrade.  The new vehicles incorporate the latest health and safety design features and also have fuel-efficient engines to help Amey to meet carbon reduction targets.
