VolkerHighways light the way in West Berkshire


VolkerHighways began a EUR 9.5 million programme of works to replace over 10,000 street lights with new energy efficient LED lamps. The project takes place in West Berkshire in July following a successful Challenge Fund Bid by the Council to the Department for Transport.



The works, commissioned by West Berkshire Council involve the removal of 10,200 existing lights and upgrading them to LED whilst also integrating them in to a central management system (CMS) and will take forty four weeks. The CMS will allow the Council’s highways team to directly monitor the lights for maintenance issues as well as dim or turn them off if required and is expected to produce a 50-60% saving on energy costs on completion of the project.
