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 streetlights in Buckinghamshire have been replaced with LEDs. During 2018/19 a further 3,300 old style will be changed to Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs).
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 is the column is replaced within the next 18 months
- red - the test has shown that this column has heavy corrosion, to ensure duty of care these columns are cut down immediately
