  • Thank you for your enquiry about street lighting on the A56 We have switched off the lighting on this section of the A56. This is to support the Dept of Transports aim to reduce carbon emissions. Sites have been chosen where there is a good safety record and where analysis shows that the lights can be switched off without increasing risks to road user safety. We are still using road lighting where it is needed; however, we are confident that we can use less of it without a significant impact on safety for road users. We will continue to review this and may restore the lighting if the situation changes.
