Knowsley street lighting scheme approved

The Department for Transport has agreed to spend £58m replacing most of Knowsley's street lighting and traffic lights, bollards and subway lights.

Knowsley Council is forming a public private partnership with Tay Valley Lighting, a subsidiary of Scottish & Southern Energy, to deliver the 25-year service contract.

Cllr Dave Lonergan, cabinet member for regeneration, economy and skills, said: "We are delighted that our scheme has been approved and we look forward to working with TVL. The scheme will deliver a range of benefits to residents, businesses and visitors alike including improved visibility, road safety and feelings of safety, as well as environmental improvements such as reduced energy consumption."
