Favourable comments have been received about new LED street lights installed by North Lincolnshire Council along Barnard Avenue and Cary Lane.
This was mentioned by the authority's leader, Coun Rob Waltham, when he gave his latest update on the work of North Lincolnshire Council.
He mentioned lighting during the latest monthly meeting of Brigg Town Council, of which he is also a member.
North Lincolnshire, as the highways authority, has a rolling programme to replace traditional lamps across the district with LEDs which use a lot less electricity and therefore help the public purse to which local residents' council tax contributes.
To many of us who are laymen in terms of street lighting, the LED lamps appear to give off a white glow, rather than the old variety's yellow hue.

North Lincolnshire Council recently took prompt action to deal with fault street lights on Glanford Road, Queen Street and St Helen's Road.
However, one lamp on St Helen's Road - we think it's labelled No 9 - has been "out" for many months. It has been reported and commented on by Brigg Blog a number of times. The location is close to the turn-off into Hedgerow Lane.
The picture above, taken around 7am one morning this week outside Wilko's store, shows the lights on Cary Lane.
