The council is spending some €675,000 on replacing the old streetlights with modern LED equipment. They reckon to get the money back in about five years because of lower electricity bills and reduced maintenance.

So far, 955 new lights have been installed. A contract has been signed for the next stage, replacement of 2500 lights along the main Avenida across town.

The complete plan will require the installation of 6200 lighting columns all over town and the more rural areas in partnership with EDP.

I hope they work better than those in Parque Alfrobeirra (near the bus station). A couple of years ago they replaced the bulbs with LED but last winter over half had failed. Fingers crossed they replace them all

The old vaguely amber coloured street lights have been being replaced here over the last few years. I find them much betterand so far have been reliable. They are also designed to direct all the ight downwards.  Maybe in years to come we'll see the stars once more.
