Energy-saving LED street lights scheme is extended
New energy-saving street lighting has been extended to a Scunthorpe street.
Lights on Queensway have been replaced by new LED models.
The move comes as North Lincolnshire Council bosses are evaluating a trial of two types of lighting in Brigg.
The lights were originally installed on four streets in the town, with a view to rolling them out across the region in a £3 million project.

Councillor Nigel Sherwood, the authority's cabinet member for highways and neighbourhoods, said the lights previously on Queensway were due for replacement.
He said: "They were down to be replaced and it was a rolling project. So rather than replace them with old-fashioned lights, they were replaced with the modern day equivalent, which is the LED."
Mr Sherwood said the council had received around 40 responses from Brigg residents to the trial in the town.
And he said the authority was now looking at options for the next stage of the project.
He said: "A report is coming to me in the next two weeks.
"We have had an excellent response to it, better than expected from the residents in Brigg for a subject like street lighting.
"We are going to simplify it into a preferred option of A, B or C, on how much they will cost and how much they will save.
"We should have a full report in about two weeks."
