Lighting replacement A456 Birmingham

Some of the old S&L columns are being replaced on Hagley Road West. Birmingham is one of a few authorities not to mix different lighting types so the new columns are having SOX lanterns fitted.

IMG 8627.JPG Hagley Rd street lights.jpg
Mixture of different street lights along Hagley Rd, at the junction meeting with the Birmingham New Rd. On the left are a few 10m blue columns with WRTL Arc 90s (SON/HPS) and taller 12m black posts with Indal Airtrace (SON/HPS) lanterns, which belong to Birmingham council. As for on the right, those street lights belong to Sandwell council, where there are more 10m blues columns with an Arc 90 and also Philips Digistreets (LED), along with S&L columns with geared Philips MA60s (SOX/LPS) in the background as well. This road is right on the border between Birmingham and Sandwell, which is why the street lighting on each side is different.

This is right on the border between Birmingham (left) and Sandwell (right), which is why the street lighting is different on each side.
