Replacement by LEDs programme

Replacement by LEDs programme


Phase 1

A limited successful trial of LED lamp replacements in areas across Essex.

Phase 2

A two year programme of work to replace 19,000 street lights with energy-saving LED lamps across the county began in August 2016.  The new LED lamps are longer-lasting, require less maintenance and use less electricity than other conventional lamps.

These have been installed on all-night street lights across the county and are save taxpayers thousands on electricity costs.

The first phase of work started in Castle Point and Rochford followed by Basildon. This was followed by crews starting replacement work in Chelmsford and Uttlesford, followed by the remaining districts.

For further information about the programmes please view the frequently asked questions found in the Document Section below.

Phase 3

Essex County Council has installed a further 23,000 LED streetlights on main roads across Essex.

Phase 4

Phase 4 will replace the remaining 85,000 street lights on mainly residential roads in Essex with new LED lights starting work by April 2021
