LED Streetlighting upgrade project

All existing 43,400 streetlights, maintained by Suffolk County Council, will be replaced with greener, LED streetlights during 2021 to 2022.

These LED lanterns use less energy and produce a more natural and focused light than the traditional orange glow of streetlights. The aim is for this upgrade project to be completed by the end of 2022 with our contractor, Bouygues E&S Infrastructure UK Limited. There will also be an opportunity for other streetlight owners within Suffolk such as Parish and District Councils to upgrade as part of this process.

In March 2019, Suffolk County Council declared a Climate Emergency and set out ambitions for becoming a carbon-neutral organisation by 2030. This streetlight upgrade supports Suffolk County Council’s ambitions, as a benefit for the environment, supporting a reduction in carbon emissions by saving energy, reducing light pollution as well as providing clearer images on CCTV, traffic cameras and dashcam footage for the benefit of public safety.
