Light Emitting Diode - Street Lighting Upgrade in Barnhill

The existing street lights in Barnhill Ward will be replaced with new energy-efficient Light Emitting Diode (LED) lanterns. The work is expected to commence in residential roads on Friday 15th December 2017 and finish on 2nd January 2017. Traffic routes will follow in the early New Year.  When completed this work is expected to save the borough at least £850,000  a year in electricity costs and will reduce our carbon emissions, making an important contribution to environmental protection.
 The LED street lights will provide a more natural white light, oppose to the artificial orange light given out by the existing street lights. The new lights will also be more clearly directed towards brightening pavements and roads in order to improve road safety and help residents feel safer when walking in the dark.

Quietway – Phase 2: Wembley Park to Harrow Weald

Transport for London (TfL) asked boroughs to identify potential future routes for cycling.

This long list was prioritised by TfL using their criteria and the Quietway network for the duration of the Quietway programme was established. The first seven routes selected by TfL formed part of the Quietway pilot programme, and subsequently further additional routes forming the London-wide Quietway network have been chosen for progression as part of phase 2.
