This £9.2m project, which will begin in April 2018 and be complete in November 2020, is the final part of plans to replace all of the county’s older, less efficient streetlights with cutting edge, energy saving LEDs.
It follows a three-year scheme which has already seen 87,000 traditional streetlights replaced with LEDs.
County Councillor Keith Iddon, cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “By replacing these streetlights with LEDs, we’ll save £1.8m every year once the project is complete.
“We’ve already replaced 87,000 of the older style street lights and this scheme will see us replace a further 38,000 streetlights with more efficient LED lights.
