waveguide lighting

Motorists and walkers using Tattenhall Road will have noticed changes to the lighting. Gone was the orange sodium glow spreading far and wide and in its place is a much more focussed cold white light; one resident, looking out of his window, thought that the road was covered in a thin layer of snow!

CWAC are one of the first Council's to install Waveguide's new lighting schemes and because of that, energy consumption, in the first three areas completed, has been cut by up to 60%. Glare and light pollution has been substantially reduced and the white light also makes cars and objects easier to identify and CCTV footage much clearer.

A spokesman for CWAC said 'Our long term plans have been to develop a modern street lighting network that uses energy-saving technology. The new lighting has been a great success — residents have commented on how it has enhanced the feeling of safety and security within their area'.

We'd love to know what the residents and users of Tattenhall Road think.
