Middlesbrough street lighting system attracts interest from across UK

Evening Gazette, 13 October 2009 (story):

The hi-tech street lighting scheme was installed in Okehampton Drive in Marton Manor, Middlesbrough, in July and has already drawn two coach-loads of interested engineers wanting to see the system in action. […]

Last month, lighting engineers from as far afield as Bedfordshire, Doncaster, Newcastle and Scotland made the journey to Middlesbrough for a demonstration of old versus new technology.

And recently 50 more engineers from as far afield as Torbay and Ayrshire visited the scheme.

How far? Jesus. Christ.

  2. From Newcastle? All the way to middlesboro? That would have taken literally several tens of minutes.

  3. Living in a ‘Vice Zone’? Why so angry, maybe negotiating a ‘resident’s’ discount would keep them ‘sweet’. They should think themselves lucky to have such amenities right on their doorstep, imagine having to brave public transport to get to your nearest ‘Vice Zone’?
