NEW energy efficient traffic lights will be switched on in Weston next week.
Low wattage LED lights will be installed at the Queensway Junction with Walford Avenue and New Bristol Road during two days of roadworks, which are due to start on September 11.
The current set of traffic lights will be out of action during the work, although a council spokesman said minimal disruption is expected.
The £18,500 scheme will see energy and carbon emissions drop by 70 per cent and reduce future maintenance costs.
