We are responsible for the repair and maintenance of over 40,000 street lighting units (including associated signs, bollards, traffic lights and pedestrian crossings).
We aim to:
- Repair all known street lighting faults within 7 calendar days
- Repair all traffic light faults within 48 hours (24 hours if a red light is not working)
Before work can start on the construction of a new road, the developer must obtain Roads Construction Consent.
The developer is responsible for the provision and maintenance of street lighting on roads and footways that are to be adopted by us.
Once street lighting is operational within a new development, the developer is responsible for its maintenance until we formally adopt the road.
We can offer a design service for road lights on a rechargeable basis, further details on this can be obtained by contacting your Local Roads office.
