Multi-million pound regeneration of Anfield continues
Friday 12 May 2017
The £260 million regeneration of Anfield in Liverpool is continuing with the installation of new LED lighting in the area.
Some of the area’s oldest street lights and columns will be replaced as part of the £4m works and environment programme within Anfield Village.
The energy saving programme will be delivered by Amey which provides highways and street lighting services to Liverpool City Council and will get underway in February.
The council claims that the new LED lighting will save 80% of the energy previously used by the old style lights.
Councillor Ann O’Byrne, deputy mayor of Liverpool, says: “This is another important milestone in the regeneration of the area and will help improve the Anfield environment.
O’Byrne adds: “The upkeep and maintenance of the old style lighting is a huge drain on public resources. Not only does LED lighting improve visibility and make the streets feel safer, it’s greener and more efficient, allowing us to invest the savings elsewhere.”
Liverpool City Council is delivering the £260m regeneration of the district in partnership with Your Housing Group and Liverpool Football Club.
The regeneration includes the redevelopment of Liverpool FC’s main stand, new and refurbished housing, improved shopping facilities, office buildings, a hotel and the creation of a new pedestrianised avenue and public square.
