LED Traffic Lights

Nov 22, 2021 | News, Parliament

Mr BARTON (Eastern Metropolitan) (12:51): (1535) My question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. A constituent of mine, Graham, has contacted me on a fairly regular basis regarding the possibility of VicRoads replacing the traffic light globes with LEDs. It is my understanding that LEDs are already used on Eastern Metro roads for some traffic signals, but not all. I have been informed that LEDs are brighter, have a longer life and reduce greenhouse gas emissions due to requiring less energy. This appears to be low-hanging fruit. Making the switch from incandescent globes to LEDs will bring road safety and energy use benefits. My constituent certainly put to me that replacing globes in the Eastern Metro Region should be a priority. So the information I seek for my constituent is: will the minister confirm whether our traffic management system uses or is planning to use LED lights moving forward?
