The replacement lanterns, found at several key locations across the town, maintain the luminaire’s original appearance while offering high-quality LED lighting performance and improved uniformity. They are also now fully functional with the county’s CMS system, which is a significant benefit.
Michael Malins, Director of Business Operations at DW Windsor, said: “As a company, we were very proud of our work in Welwyn City Garden over two decades ago, so it was a privilege to be able to work in the area again.
“Having manufactured the original Welwyn lantern, it was an honour to be appointed to complete the upgrade work. With the latest LED technology installed, the lanterns are now far more energy-efficient and are set to illuminate the streets of Welwyn Garden City for the next 20 plus years.
“We look forward to working with Ringway Infrastructure Services and Hertfordshire County Council again in the future.”
The centenary was celebrated through a number of events, activities and competitions. The community was heavily involved, and the town is looking ahead to the next 100 years of making Welwyn Garden City a wonderful place to live and visit.
