Weston and Worle has street lamps overhaul

Almost 300 street lamps are set to be updated in Weston and Worle at a cost of £314,000.

The ongoing street light replacement programme will see 154 lamps in Weston and 141 lamps in Worle being renewed.

Elfan Ap Rees, deputy leader of North Somerset Council, said the new lighting would help meet government targets for energy efficiencies.

The recyclable low-carbon emission lights will be installed by mid-January, the council said.

Part of the cost, £181,000, has been paid for through the Local Transport Plan, with the remaining balance paid for by the local council.

The Local Transport Plan is a partnership between North Somerset, Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol City and South Gloucestershire councils to improve transport over the next 25 - 30 years.

Contractor, Scottish and Southern Energy, will carry out the work along Walliscote Road, Albert Quadrant, Arundell Road, Bristol Road Lower, Upper Bristol Road, part of Spring Hill and in North Worle and Church Road.
