Work to covert street lights in Dudley nearly complete

Work to convert all lights on main roads in Dudley to LEDs will be completed by the end of the year, according to Dudley Council.

Around 6,600 street lights on main roads across the borough have now been converted – with a small remaining few expected to be converted within the next six weeks.

Dudley Council’s cabinet is being told the scheme to replace all lights on main roads and make them more energy efficient is now 98% complete.

Councillor Karen Shakespeare, Dudley Council’s cabinet member for public realm, said: “The ongoing programme to replace our street lights with improved, less expensive more energy efficient LED bulbs is part of the council’s Invest to Save project.

“The outlay will be more than covered by the savings we make on electricity, and because we will be using less it will ease pressure on the network. It’s great to see the scheme is nearly complete and I look forward to seeing it fully rolled out.”
