Street Lights

In New Plymouth District we have approximately 9,500 streetlights. 8,200 are on local roads, 1,000 on state highways, and 250 in parks.

We manage the streetlights in the district, including the ones on the state highway network on behalf of the NZ Transport Agency and most of the under-veranda lights in the CBD and shopping areas in New Plymouth District.

As an invest to save strategy, all streetlights are being replaced by LED lights. LED streetlights result in significant reduction in power used and a reduction in maintenance.
