Main facts/points outlined in body of text

  • This public lighting improvement campaign launched by the Madrid City Council not only involves the replacement of luminaires, but also, in many cases, the adaptation of the installations with the improvement of wiring, communications, new lighting studies and actions to improve accessibility with the recessing of elements in those areas of narrow sidewalks where their relocation means more space for pedestrians.
  • Between now and next summer, a total of 7,782 luminaires in these five districts will be renewed thanks to an investment of 5 million euros. The aim of these actions is to improve the lighting installations by replacing sodium vapor light points with LED technology to improve efficiency, with an estimated energy saving of more than 30%, while reducing light pollution.
  • These interventions are in addition to those already carried out in streets of all districts and in the fast access roads to the city since the end of last year with the beginning of the works of the new contract of conservation and maintenance of public lighting, which has meant a renewal, so far, of 32,500 luminaires, which is equivalent to having renewed the entire public lighting of cities such as Burgos or Granada. Thus, by next summer, more than 40,000 luminaires will have been renewed.
