The new LED street lights provide a clearer more even light and have been proven in UK studies to improve crime detection through better facial recognition and improved visual clarity of colours.
(PRWEB UK) 17 October 2013
According to Get West London on October 11, new LED street lights are to be installed in 60 areas in Hounslow which are affected by antisocial behaviour and crime. 1706 LED streetlights are to be installed in 60 locations, with just over 1000 of these already installed in Chiswick, Feltham and Hounslow. In association with the police, two thirds of the street lights have been installed in 20 locations which currently have the highest rate of burglaries in the area.
In order to combat crime, reduce fear as the evenings draw in and to improve quality of CCTV images, installation of the remaining street lights has been brought forward from the original date in 2014. An additional 327 street lights will be installed earlier than the original date, while the design for a further 319 street lights has also been brought forward to ensure installation in 2014.
Rob Gillespie, Hounslow Highways service director, told Get West London that:
“The new LED street lights provide a clearer more even light and have been proven in UK studies to improve crime detection through better facial recognition and improved visual clarity of colours. They also contribute to an important reduction in the fear of crime.”
