New Street Lighting For Beverley

More than 130 street light lanterns will be replaced in the centre of Beverley as part of the council's drive to save energy, reduce carbon emissions and lower costs.

The street lighting programme aims to replace all the East Riding's old, low-pressure orange lights with fluorescent white lights and has already seen lanterns changed in Hessle, Anlaby, Cottingham and areas of Bridlington.

The works in Beverley will take place during the months of June and July and will see lanterns replaced in Hull Bridge Road, Norwood, Manor Road, Wylies Road, North Bar Without, New Walk, Molescroft Road and Driffield Road.

Councillor Chris Matthews, cabinet portfolio holder for infrastructure, highways and emergency planning, said: "The street lighting programme is a major investment by the council, which will hopefully see the removal of all low-pressure sodium lights within the next four to five years.

"Switching the lighting will save the council an estimated 25 to 30 per cent on energy consumption over the investment period and will also help achieve our objective of a 34 per cent carbon reduction before 2020.

"The works in Beverley alone will save the council 36,000 units of electricity and 20 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year."
