Part night lighting

Part-night lighting is where street lights switch on at dusk and remain alight until around midnight, when they switch off. They then switch on again at around 5:30am and remain alight until dawn.

We introduced it over a three-year period, which started in April 2012, principally to reduce harmful carbon dioxide emissions and manage costs.
