In November I posted on this blog about work to upgrade Bristol’s street lights. I highlighted that, not only do the upgrades save energy and money, but they help people with visual impairments.

At the time I had just been given a tour around some local streets by a resident with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a condition which results in tunnel vision.┬áLast week I invited Bristol’s Cabinet Member for Transport and Connectivity, Mhairi Threlfall, to join the resident and I on a similar tour.

It was a great opportunity to highlight to the Council, at the highest level, what a difference improved street lighting can make for people with visual impairments. I think that Mhairi found it very useful and gave her lots of food for thought when the Council continues to make improvements to our city’s street lighting.
