LP in Herts

I read that Hertfordshire Highways are planning to replace the majority of their (110,000) street lights. So I got an email off to them asking if light pollution had figured in their plans. This is what they come back with:

As well as being more energy efficient, the light fittings that Herts County Council plan to install will reduce light pollution. The fittings are specifically designed to shine light downwards and avoid 'sky glow'.

Mind you, they are looking for central government to provide funding - so don't hold your breath. If successful though they could start introducing these from 2013.

They keep turning lights off at various bits of the A1 and at a few of the big roundabouts along the A1.

The sky over Stevenage is solid yellow/orange, even the small villages have a fair glow above them. Guess that quite a lot could be simply extinguished to save money.
