  • Providing routine and non-routine maintenance
  • Planned LED replacements, providing energy savings for the councils

“Modern, reliable street lighting is an important part of the council’s commitment to the safety of our residents and to our climate emergency carbon reduction targets. We welcome VolkerHighways to Kingston to work with us.”

Cllr Hilary Gander, environment and sustainable transport portfolio holder for the Royal Borough of Kingston

"This new contract will help reduce Sutton's energy bills and support our ambitious climate emergency response. The new LED lamp columns can also double up as electric vehicle charging points. More reliable street lighting will also ensure local residents feel safer after dark and help improve road safety in the borough.”
