Whats Happening And Why
In August 2007 Balfour Beatty, in partnership with Derby City Council, began work replacing 27,000 street lighting columns and lantern fittings. This Core Investment Programme (CIP) was successfully completed in 2012. The Public Private Partnership (PPP) will last for 25 years and include all maintenance activities including lamp changes, painting, cleaning, electrical testing and inspections. Balfour Beatty is responsible for providing and maintaining street lighting and highway lit signs until 2032.
Although the major works have now been completed, we are not standing still and have started a LED replacement programme in residential areas. Works are due to be finished by Christmas 2018 however we are significantly ahead of programme and should be finished by August 2018. This latest investment to Derby City’s infrastructure, adds to other energy saving projects, saving circa 500,000 kWh of energy per year. We will continue to look forward, bringing innovative solutions wherever possible.
A second wave of column replacements is due to be completed by the end of 2024. This investment will bring 85% of Derby City’s assets up to the latest standards. The work will involve the installation of new lighting columns and the removal of the old columns once the new columns are working. Balfour Beatty will try to keep disruption and inconvenience to a minimum.
The new street lighting layout will be designed to meet current standards and the latest technology will be used so that the lighting levels needed are achieved. Energy consumption will be maintained at the lowest possible level.
In carrying out this work Balfour Beatty are committed to ensuring enquiries will be courteously dealt with by a member of their customer care team and responding to all enquiries within five working days of receipt
