Bromley completes LED streetlight upgrade

Bromley has recently completed the transition of all 28,000 streetlights to energy-efficient LED bulbs.

The initiative aims to enhance the reliability of lighting for residents and motorists while maximising energy savings.

The move supports the council's target to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2027 and is expected to result in financial savings of £1 million annually, contributing to other frontline services.

The project, which commenced in 2013, sought to reduce carbon dioxide emissions associated with energy usage, lower energy costs and create well-lit streets for residents.

Additionally, more than 8,000 of the oldest concrete lamp columns have been replaced.

Heritage street lanterns, 'gas lamps,' and ornate design lanterns have also been retrofitted with replacement lamp units.

Councillor Nicholas Bennett, Executive Councillor for Transport, Highways and Road Safety, said: "This is a win-win for the council taxpayer and the environment, virtue has its reward."
