The County Council is responsible for 52,000 streetlights on highways maintainable at public expense across the county. To find details about a street light in your area, please see our interactive map below.

Report a street lighting fault

If you wish to report one of our street lights not working or have any other concerns about our streetlights, please go to Balfour Beatty's fault reporting web page or contact their office on 0800 7838247 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.


If you have any other queries regarding streetlighting, please contact Cambridgeshire County Council at [email protected].  

Street lighting is also provided by parish and town councils, district councils, Highways England (trunk roads and motorways) and private owners.

Street lighting maintenance

In July 2011, a 25 year Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contract commenced between the Cambridgeshire County Council and Balfour Beatty. This PFI contract will allow Balfour Beatty to carry out vital improvements and maintenance to County Council owned street lighting on behalf of Cambridgeshire County Council.

2018 LED upgrade

Between May and December 2018, 3,635 energy-saving LED streetlights will be installed across the county as part of the LED lantern replacement project. To find out more, please see the Balfour Beatty website.
