Traffic lights in the county of Lincolnshire are giving new meaning to the phrase ‘Red, Amber, Green’. The Lincolnshire Highways Alliance is installing more than 1,400 new low-energy LED light systems in traffic lights and at pedestrian crossings across the county.
Tim Clark, traffic signals manager believes the new bulbs will save the council thousands of pounds on their energy bill.
He said: “The new LED light systems will be up to six times more energy efficient. We estimate that they will reduce carbon emissions by 300 tonnes every year. Hopefully they will last about ten years, which will deliver an energy saving of about £60,000 each year.”
