From June, Lambeth will begin a programme which will convert 12,981 of Lambeth’s
street lighting stock from SON-T (sodium) bulbs to LED (Light Emitting Diode)
bulbs, starting with Bishops /Princes/Oval/Vassall wards. The work will be carried out over a 18 month period. The existing lamp
will be re-used with a new LED fitting being installed into the lantern. The
programme of works will start in the North of the borough and proceed as
June – Bishops /Princes/Oval/Vassall
July – Stockwell/Ferndale/Larkhall
July/August – Clapham Town/Common
August – Tulse Hill
September – Brixton Hill/Coldharbour
Sept/Oct – Herne Hill
Mid Oct. – Thurlow Park
Oct/Nov – Streatham Hill
November – Thornton/St Leonards
December – Streatham South
January ‘17 – Streatham Wells/Knights Hill
February ‘17 – Gipsy Hill
Feb-April ‘17 – Parks, Footpaths & A Roads
June ‘17 – Heritage Columns (Retro fit)
What are the benefits of carrying out this work?
The two main benefits of converting to LED are a reduction in Lambeth’s CO2
emissions and reduced energy bill for the council, thereby fulfilling our
manifesto pledge to protect the environment by reducing the amount of energy the
council uses and saving up to £600,000 per year.
How will residents be advised of works on their roads?
A letter will be sent to you 10 days before work commences on your road giving
details of what will be carried out. The time spent on your street will depend
on the extent of the work that has to be done on the road. As the light fittings
are replaced rather than the any cabling being changed, no significant risks or
delays are expected.
