On Monday 19 October, East Sussex Highways began an 18-month project to improve street lighting, which will reduce council energy bills and lower carbon emissions. Between then and March 2022, they will upgrade a total of 16,000 street light units to high efficiency LED lanterns and replace 3,000 concrete columns as part of a countywide project.
The work is being supported by a £2.4 million interest free loan from Salix Finance Ltd, which provides Government funding to the public sector to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and lower energy bills.
Phase Two of this project is now underway and will take place in the following roads in Maresfield between now until October 2021:
• A22 Batts Bridge Roundabout
• A22 Lampool Roundabout
• A272 Battsbridge Road
• Batts Bridge Road
• The Paddock
This work will involve upgrading/replacing any older style street light columns and lanterns and will not involve replacing all streetlights in the above roads.
