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
