Those LED street lights

New LED street lamps are to be installed throughout the city.  The pilot - which has brought new lights to areas such as Prestonfield and Langton Road - brought many complaints that the new lights were not bright enough and that they left pools of darkness where there had previously been brightness.

But the new lights, we are told, will be brighter than those used in the pilot.  And of course, the LED lights will be considerably cheaper to run than the old sodium lamps.

There will also be the ability to control the brightness remotely (at the moment changes have to me made lamppost by lamppost).

Even if you have been part of the pilot and the lamps in your street are not bright enough, do get in touch to see if they can be adjusted.
