Improved lighting for St Aubin's Bay

21 May 2010

Transport and Technical Services (TTS)  is improving lighting and saving money by replacing the lights on the walks along St Aubin’s Bay with new low energy, LED long life lamps.

The lighting which runs along the south coast promenades has been in service for 22 years and parts of the equipment need replacing. The new LED lighting will make it cost effective for the department to replace all the lamps, while re-using the existing cables and lamp holders, which remain in serviceable condition.

The project is likely to be particularly welcomed by cyclists, some of whom had approached the department to see if improvements could be made. They had identified particular badly lit stretches of the cycle track in St Aubin’s Bay which made it difficult for them to commute home, in the dark, during the winter months. The lights are currently being trialled along a section of the promenade cycle track, west of Bel Royal.

Savings on maintenance and electricity costs will cover the cost of investment in the lighting in just over 3 years and as the lamps are likely to last up to 25 years, there should be many years of ongoing savings.

“TTS is continually reviewing the services it provides to look for service improvements and cost savings,” said the Connétable Mike Jackson, Minister for Transport and Technical Services. “The replacement of these lights manages to achieve both these objectives. After the initial payback period, we will be saving about £15,000 a year. ”
