On June 26, the City of Hamilton began to upgrade street lighting on residential streets throughout the City of Hamilton. About 27,000 high-pressure sodium cobra head street lights lining residential communities will be upgraded to energy and cost efficient light-emitting diode (LED) lights over the coming three years. Phase one has started in Waterdown.
Neighbourhoods in Waterdown will receive upgraded street lighting in 2017. The upgrades will continue in 2018 in the remaining areas of Flamborough, central Hamilton and Ancaster, and Glanbrook.
Residents can expect brighter sidewalks and roadways once the new LED upgrade is complete on their street. For the full media release from the City of Hamilton, please click here.
