As well as our streetlighting programme where we enhanced or replaced 12,068 streetlights with LED lights, we are also responsible for:
We have also been undertaking a traffic signal upgrade programme on all 80 of the Island’s traffic signals including those at pedestrian crossings and installing new pedestrian user friendly intelligence (or Puffin) crossings in place of Pelican crossings. These new crossings include infra-red cameras that detect the presence of pedestrians, increasing or reducing the time a light stays red according to the presence (or not) of pedestrians. The final part of this programme involves an upgrade to the traffic signals around Coppins Bridge. This programme will complete in March 2022.
We are also carrying out a programme of work, on behalf of the Isle of Wight Council to replace the lighting on the prison estate following funding received by the council for these purposes. These lights are the last of the old type of non-LED ‘orange’ street lighting on the Island.
