Street light repairs
We are responsible for street lights on the public highway in Buckinghamshire.
LED replacement programme 2018 - 2019
Some lights are still using the old style lamps which are a deep orange colour.
Over the past five years more than 15,000 have been replaced with LEDs, during 2018/19 a further 3,300 will be changed.
We carry out testing on all columns that are in over 25 years old.
TfB is currently in the final year of a rolling 6 year programme.
The results of the testing are as follows:
- green - the column is perfect and given a 6 year guarantee
- low Amber - the test has detected slight corrosion will be retested within 3 years
- high amber - the test has detected advanced stages of corrosion with recommendation it is replaced within the next 18 months
- red - the test has shown that this column has heavy corrosion, these are cut down immediately
