WORK will begin next week to install LED lighting at Bromsgrove’s New Road Car Park.
It will be carried out by the council’s contractors, Prysmian Cables and Systems Limited, starting on Wednesday, June 9, and should bring about vast improvements to the lighting in the area.
It will also reduce the council’s carbon footprint and energy bills for the car park.
LED lights last much longer than traditional forms of lighting and so should mean less maintenance work is required.
LEDs are also much brighter which means improved safety for car park users, particularly in the winter, as well as improved visibility on CCTV.
The work will be undertaken during the daytime and should take approximately one week to complete.
During this time, half of the car park will be out of use at a time so that the work can be completed safely.
Bromsgrove District Council leader, Coun Karen May, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience this work may cause to car park users or residents in the surrounding area and aim to complete the work as efficiently as possible.
“The end result will make a safer, brighter, and a more pleasant experience for everyone as well as reducing energy usage.
“Small changes like this help regenerate the area as well as improving the overall carbon footprint of our town.”
