Street Lighting

Leicester City Council’s public lighting team are responsible for the design, installation and maintenance of street lights, traffic signs, bollards, floodlighting of public buildings and festive decorations all within the City boundaries. There are approximately 35,300 street lights and 7,400 traffic signs in Leicester.


All street lights, traffic signs and bollards are inspected monthly. However, faults can occur in between inspections and the team relies on the goodwill of the general public to report these faults.


Faults are usually repaired within 5 working days. If a fault is detected on the underground electricity cable, repairs can take considerably longer.
