    This is great news. There will be the initial outlay of 4 million but this will reap dividends long term with greatly reduced running costs. This will result in more funds going to libraries, and other Council funded amenities long term

    yeah... sure

    I'm not adverse to the cost for the change, it's just odd that there isn't any clear numbers in the article or any indication like "we estimate to have recouped the cost in just over 3 years"

    yeah, they've been replacing them years bit by bit, this is just their PR folks earning their wages.. personally I like the white light, always found the sodium orange light discomforting
