ALMOST 10,000 street lights in Bolton have been switched over to new LED lighting.
Work is underway across the borough and about 1,700 streets are now using the lower energy lighting.
Rollout started last April and teams are currently working in Astley Bridge, Blackrod, Bromley Cross, Halliwell, Horwich, Heaton, the town centre, Tonge, Smithills and Westhoughton.
The next areas to benefit from the new lighting will be Little Lever and Lostock. Work is due to start there in June.
The council will also be changing the lights that are located on public footpaths and walkways after Easter. www.thisislancashire.co.uk
