Another City Plans To Replace Traditional Streetlights With LED Lighting

- Feb 16, 2019-

Dublin, the capital of the republic of Ireland, is planning to start smart city applications by replacing traditional public streetlights with LED lighting.


The Dublin city government has proposed a project to replace 40,000 city streetlights with LED lights.

Meanwhile, the city will install smart city apps and restore 120 historical and traditional light poles, following the original design.


The project is currently in the tender stage and is expected to cost 80 million euros (609 million yuan).

The city of Dublin is known for its ornate historic streetlights, clover designs and roofing that are uniquely Georgian.

One aim of the street lamp replacement project is to unify Dublin's technology style, colour temperature and lighting design.


In addition, the municipal government hopes to establish a central management system to realize remote monitoring, control and management of street lights, thus promoting the application process of smart city.
