Blue painted columns with GEC Z9564 lanterns, between Wednesbury and Walsall. I believe these street lights were installed in the 1970s.

6675.JPG Dudley to Merry Hill junction.jpg
Around Holly Hall and Woodside in Dudley, coming from Brierley Hill. This is just at the junction where Stourbridge Road (A461) and Highgate Road (A4036) meet. Picture taken in February 2019.
IMG8754JPG Urbis Ampera Maxis.jpg
Along the Lichfield Road around Walsall Wood. Black columns and Urbis Ampera Maxis at one of the junctions for Brownhills. They would of replaced some of the Urbis ZX2s, as seen in the background.
IMG8755JPG Urbis Ampera Maxis.jpg
Along the Lichfield Road around Walsall Wood. Black columns and Urbis Ampera Maxis (LED) at one of the junctions for Brownhills. These would of replaced a few Urbis ZX2s (SON/HPS).
IMG8756JPG Urbis Ampera Maxis.jpg
Along the Lichfield Road around Walsall Wood. Black columns and Urbis Amperas at one of the junctions for Brownhills. These lanterns were installed a few years ago.
IMG.8888.JPG 1 chevron Holophane VMax 12m columns.jpg
Along Stourbridge Rd heading into Dudley. This section is a duel carriageway and an important busy main-road, yet strangely the street lights are 12m post-top columns but with very small LED 1-chevron Holophane V-Max lanterns, which is quite strange. Previously I think the lanterns were SON/HPS and much bigger than these new LED ones.
IMG.8080.JPG Urbis Ampera Midi Thorn R2L2 Dudley.jpg
Just coming off Scotts Green Island and heading into Dudley town centre. The roundabout is lit with Urbis Ampera Midis and the road is lit with Thorn R2L2s, both LED types. Previously the old lanterns were flat-glass Thorn Rivieras (SON/HPS) which got replaced in 2018.
Holophane V-Max Thorn R2L2s Dudley.jpg
Close up shot of 1-chevron Holophane V-Max on twin-bracket and a post-top Thorn R2L2. These columns are 12 metres tall, and the previous lanterns were mostly Industria Vectras with the odd Industria Arc 90 as well.
IMG.8749.JPG A461 Philips Iridiums Staffordshire.jpg
Philips Iridiums along the A461, just as you cross the border into Staffordshire. These modern steel columns and Iridiums were installed around 2015, replacing 1970s style street lights with old SOX/LPS lanterns.
IMG 8750.JPG old column with ZX2.jpg
Old street light column along the A461, near the border between Walsall and Staffordshire, on the Walsall side. The lantern now is an Urbis ZX2 but isn't the original, and the column is now painted black but it used to be a green colour. It looks as if this street light was installed either in 1970s or 1980s, and then the ZX2 replaced the old lantern in 1990s.
IMG 8885.JPG dudley street lighting and signs.jpg
At Scotts Green Island in Dudley, where the A461 and A4101 meet. In the foreground are 'turn left' regulatory and sharp deviation of route signs, and in the background are street lights with LED lanterns such as Urbis Ampera Midis and Thorn R2L2s.
IMG 8756.JPG urbis old street lighting.jpg
Old 1960s style street lights along the A461 between Rushall and Walsall Wood. The lanterns are deeper bowled and dark coloured Urbis ZX2s, which wouldn't of been the originals.
IMG 0294.JPG urbis zx2s junction 9 m6.jpg
Urbis ZX2s at junction 9 is of the M6. These lanterns have probably been there since the 1990s and don't think were the original ones for these columns.
IMG 0301.JPG philips unistreets wednesbury.jpg
Blue coloured 1970s style street lights with new Philips Unistreets (LED). In the foreground is a Gen 2 version, and in the background is a Gen 1 version. The previous lanterns were LPS/SOX types.
IMG 0300.JPG philips unistreet wednesbury.jpg
Blue coloured older street light but with a new Philips Unistreet (LED). This lantern is the Gen 2 version. It replaced a Philips MA50 (LPS/SOX).
IMG 0298.JPG Philips MA50 A461.jpg
One last surviving Philips MA50 still remains on the A461 in Wednesbury, back in April. All the other SOX/LPS lights along this road have been replaced for Philips Unistreet Gen 2s, which are LED.
IMG 0299.JPG Vectra Arc 90 Unistreet 2s A461.jpg
10m columns with a mixture of different lanterns on the A461 in Wednesbury. The SON/HPS lanterns in the foreground is a Vectra and an Arc 90, both of which are Industria/WRTL. The new LEDs in the background are Philips Unistreet Gen 2s, which replaced SOX/LPS lights such as Philips MA50s. At the time they replaced nearly all the LPS/SOX lanterns along this road and only left some of the newest HPS/SON ones.
