What We Do

Upgrade Period

The Core Investment Programme (CIP) was the upgrade element of the project and was completed in 2017. This comprised of the upgrade of all County Council owned lighting columns, lanterns, illuminated signs and illuminated traffic bollards across the county.

Maintenance Period

From 2017 to 2036, we will continue to maintain all 60,000+ assets in the county, carrying out planned and reactive maintenance.

  • Reactive maintenance means fixing lights which don't work, replacing damaged assets, attending emergencies, and a variety of other tasks in collaboration with the County Council.
  • Planned maintenance consists of routinely changing lamps (the 'bulbs' inside the light fittings), cleaning the lights, carrying out electrical tests, safety inspections and painting. The timescales of these tasks typically ranges between 2-5 years.

During this period we will also work with the County Council and all stakeholders to accrue new assets intot he PFI and start looking after them, and support with all major highway projects, for example the new A14 and upcoming A428 upgrades.
