Street Lighting Funding Approved

The Government has today approved more than £100 million of funding to improve street lighting in Cambridgeshire.

The Private Finance Initiative (PFI) scheme includes the following:

  • Installation of 37,600 new lighting columns within the first five years; 
  • Replacement of over 4,500 illuminated traffic signs and bollards; 
  • Reduction in energy consumption and CO2 emissions; and, 
  • State of the art technology for early detection of defective lighting

The County Council have spent years getting this project right.  It is good, up front investment that will save money in the long term and make our street lighting provision much more adaptable.
