Blaenau Gwent are installing new street lamps, they haven't replaced the dim ones in my street yet, but have done in the back lane, and I must say, they are really bright. I have been told that some folk are complaining that they are too bright, but in my humble opinion, if the make our streets safer I'm all for them. If the are shining in your bedrooms, close your blinds or curtains.

We've had these for a while now and they are a bright white (LED) thankfully I sleep in the back, have no need to put on any lights at night to navigate the house as the whole front is lit up like Blackpool, you would need blackout blinds/curtains if you need a dark room to sleep.

On top of every street light there should be a mini wind turbine similar to the ones used in caravans to recharge the lights 24/7.

A good light, a lot better then the dull yellow light given out by the old lights.
