Bromley Council invests £8.5m in LED street lights

AN £8.5M investment programme will see state of the art LED street lights springing up across Bromley over the next two years.

Around half of the borough’s 27,000 street lamps will be replaced by lighting contractor May Gurney (Cartledge).

The works will also include installing 8,000 new street lamp columns, replacing the oldest 50-year-old lamp columns in the borough.

The LED lamps will be 50 per cent more efficient than existing bulbs which will mean savings in the £1.3m spent on electricity for the 27,000 street lights last financial year.

Portfolio holder for the environment Councillor Colin Smith said: “Rarely are there win win situations for council taxpayers these days but this is one of them. 

"Bromley is known for its careful judicious use of financial resources and this project will result in substantial savings and bring about desperately needed new infrastructure at the same time. 

"The sound financial position we have brought about allows these type of investments to be made and further improves the position for everyone."
