New £132M Northampton PFI street lighting funding announced

More than £132M of Government funding will be made available to improve street lighting in Northamptonshire, transport minister Norman Baker announced today.

The Private Finance Initiative (PFI) funding will allow Northamptonshire County Council to carry out vital improvements and maintenance to their street lighting.

The PFI scheme will fund the maintenance of the street lights for the next 25 years.

In the next five years the county council will replace about two-thirds of its lighting stock throughout the county with the remaining third of columns having their lamps and electronics changed.

A new centrally controlled management system will also be installed which will pick up any faults remotely, removing the need for inspection patrols.
