We have secured £6 million from the Government’s Local Highways Maintenance Challenge Fund to improve street lighting in the East Riding by 2018. This allows us to replace street lights that may be:
- cracked or damaged
- past their life expectancy
- using significantly more energy than newer lights.
The new lights will be whiter than the older style orange lights currently in use, which gives better lighting and uses less energy. Replacement columns will usually be made of steel, although different columns may be used in conservation areas.
