Reading installs energy saving street lights

More than 200 new street lights are due to be installed in Reading.

The work begins on Monday night to replace 184 lights along the A33, between Imperial Way and the Inner Distribution Road.

Work to upgrade 42 lights along the shared Kennetside pedestrian and cycleway commences the following week.

Reading Borough Council says the new lights will provide a safer environment, and reduce energy costs and carbon emissions.
