City’s streetlight LED replacement project lights up Mitchells Plain<p>​<br></p><span><p>'This project is an important City project as it directly impacts on the lives of Capetonians. Adequate and energy efficient lighting not only makes our roads and communities safer, but is more environmentally friendly. LED luminaires provide much improved lighting, it requires less maintenance and only need to be replaced every 25 years. This equipment also has an almost zero failure rate. </p><p>'The City's LED retrofitting programme aims to fit 7150 LED luminaires in areas across the city every year, while the refurbishment and maintenance of existing streetlight infrastructure continues.<br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:951px;" /> </figure>​​</span><span><p>'The efficiency of the City's resources is an important component for our economic growth and resilience and we will continue to promote energy efficiency as a means of reducing emissions in the metro. We are pleased to see the project make great strides in Mitchells Plain and in many other areas in the metro and we will continue to do more over the coming months,' said Cape Town Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis.</p><p>'The City's LED project in Mitchells Plain is shining bright and is making progress. This project is an example of the City's commitment to providing reliable and efficient streetlighting to residents. It is being carried out in various areas of the metro, where older Mercury Vapour (MV) luminaries are being replaced with energy efficient LEDs and older LEDs and streetpoles are being refurbished. We are pleased with the progress being made here in Spine Road where 158 streetpoles and LEDs have been refurbished thus far. Work is ongoing and the allocated budget for the Spine Road project is R3,7 million for the current financial year.<br></p><p><br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:1935px;" /> </figure>​​</span><span><p>'City teams are also working on streetlighting in other main routes in the Mitchells Plain area, such as Eisleben, Morgenster, Highlands and Wespoort roads, among others,' said Councillor Van Reenen.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Report damage to municipal electrical infrastructure:</strong></p><p>The City deploy security and monitor hotspot areas where possible but we rely on our communities to alert us and to help us protect community infrastructure.</p><p> </p><p>The SAPS remains the lead authority in crime prevention.</p><p><br><strong>SMS:</strong> 31220 <br><strong>Email:</strong> <a href="" target="_blank"></a></p><p> </p><p><br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" /> </figure>​​</span><p><span style="font-weight:700;">Anonymous </span><span style="font-weight:700;">tip-offs welcomed:</span></p><p>Residents can give anonymous tip offs if they are aware of illegal activity, such as illegal connections or unlawful occupations, that are taking place; that has happened or is still to happen.
