Have your say

The third stage of a scheme to give our villages and towns better street lighting is almost done.

By March, 2585 traditional lamps will have been replaced with more efficient LED lanterns.

Since January, the total number of streetlights replaced as part of the programme has risen to over 1500.

The Transport for Bucks programme has stretched across the county and sees traditional sodium lamps replaced with modern LED lamps, which not only save energy, create lower carbon emissions and reduce maintenance costs, but are also made of materials with less environmental impact.

Next week the programme will visit the following locations:

Fenny Stratford Bypass, Great Brickhill – Continues 16 February – 09.30-15.30, Traffic lights

Bletchley Road, Whaddon – Continues 16 February – 10.00-14.00, Traffic lights

Oxford Road, Stone – Continues 16 February – 10.00-14.30, Stop/go

Tring Road, Edlesborough – Continues 16 & 17 February, 09.00-16.00, Traffic lights

Aylesbury Road, Waddesdon – Continues 16 & 17 February – 10.00-14.00, Traffic lights

Mursley Road, Swanbourne – Continues 16 & 17 February – 09.30-16.30, Traffic lights

Market Square, Buckingham – 19-23 February – 09.00-16.00, Stop/go

Bridge Street, Buckingham – 19-23 February – No time restrictions, Stop/go

These timings are the window of work that the contractor is permitted to use, so traffic restrictions will fall sometime within this. The scheme is likely to be completed across Buckinghamshire by March 2015.
