Is Edinburgh Council keeping you in the dark? CEC’s response

This post is adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council. It follows on from this post.

Thank you for your e-mail of 11th February regarding the above which has been forwarded to me by John McFarlane to provide our response in blue to the questions you have asked.  Please accept our apologies for the delay in responding to your original e-mail which occurred due to an administrative oversight.

  1. whether P4 or P3 lanterns have been installed during the preceding pilot project in Dalmeny and Iona Street. Dalmeny Street and Iona Street were designed to P3 however the actual installed lighting levels were P3 in Iona Street and P4 in Dalmeny Street. I would clarify that P3 is a higher lighting level than P4.
  2. the width of both streets (road and footpaths) Dalmeny Street is 20m and Iona Street is 20m for the majority of the street except the bottom section beyond Dickson Street which is 15m.
  3. the average distance between light columns on the same side in both streets The average distance between columns in Dalmeny Street is 44m and Iona Street is 58m.
  4. what plans there are to improve light coverage in both streets. It is accepted that the lighting level in Dalmeny Street is insufficient and despite recently turning up the lights to their maximum output during January, 2016 a new Street Lighting scheme will be installed as part of the Street Lighting Capital Works programme for 2016/17. Due to the low level of complaints and the fact that the installed lighting level is P3 there are no plans to upgrade the lighting in Iona Street.

I trust the above information is to your satisfaction. Should you have any further queries regarding this matter, please contact me on (0131) 458 8040 or at streetlighting@edinburgh.gov.uk.
