Bucks Streetlight Switch-off

Some streetlights in Buckinghamshire will now be removed after a successful trial saw crashes, carbon emissions and light pollution reduced.

Buckinghamshire County Council has told Heart, since the switch-off trial started in 2007, they've saved £250,000 in energy bills alone.

The number of injuries caused by car crashes during hours of darkness has also gone down by 26%.

Following a public consultation looking at this data, a final decision has now been made on turning some lights off permanently.

In areas where lights are due to be removed, measures such as LED lights on central islands, new speed limits and new signage are being brought in where necessary.
