ALMOST 20,000 street lights in Barnsley will be replaced with energy-saving LEDs at a cost of about £4.3 million.

The investment will save the council about £500,000 a year, according to cabinet spokesman Coun Roy Miller.

There are about 33,100 street lights in the borough and, while 9,242 of these are classed as lighting for traffic routes such as the main A roads, there are 19,800 classed as residential road lighting, which will be replaced.
