Can you please tell me the typical cost to the Council of erecting a highway street light lamp post and connecting it up to a power supply and which contractor the Council would use to source and erect the lamp post, please?
Does the same contractor install highway signs?
Advice given - 23 March 2016
The typical cost to provide a new street light is as follows:
New connection to a street light UK Power Networks South Eastern Area £927.00 (1 April 2016)
New connection to a street light UK Power Networks London Area £1,185.00 (1 April 2016)
*Note the LBRuT is split over two DNO area's (distribution network operator)
The Council's own in-house contractor is responsible for installing highway signs.
