A scheme to replace Surrey’s orange streetlights with nearly 90,000 brighter energy-efficient lights is on course to finish almost a year ahead of schedule next April.

The project’s designed to save around £12 million over 25 years will also cut light pollution because the new lamps direct light downwards.

The new lamps are also controlled by computer so lighting can be varied as needed, rather than being turned on or off at fixed times of day.

Local Sports Review

In the Premier League, in-form Newcastle defeated Crystal Palace 3 nil at Selhurst Park. It could’ve been much worse if it wasn’t for some great saves from keeper Julian Speroni. Despite the loss, The Eagles remain third from bottom thanks to favourable results from the surrounding premier league strugglers.

Crawley Town pulled off an unlikely victory against League One leaders Leyton Orient earning new manager John Gregory his first victory at the club. After falling behind, the Reds recovered to win 3-1

The only other local match played resulted in plenty of goals as Folkstone Invicta beat Crawley Down Gatwick by 8 goals to nil.

Floodlight failure af Whitstable caused Redhill’s match to be postponed Whitstable while Merstham v Burgess Hill and Three Bridges v Sittingbourne and South Park’s match with Hanworth were called off after late pitch inspections
