The Highways Agency in partnership with other UK local highway authorities proposed a study in 2007-08 to investigate luminaire maintenance factors. This study is due to complete in 2008-09 for which the Agency has allocated a £13,000 contribution.
The Highways Agency allocated £393,000 in 2007-08 and £165,000 for 2008-09 to fund a range of road lighting assessment projects. These are part of the Agency’s Efficiency Strategy for Road Lighting under the Sustainable Development Action Plan. This work will significantly reduce the Agency’s carbon footprint, and capital and operational costs due to road lighting.
