I know that this will be happen. They LEDding the part of Khalutsei ha-Ta'asiya street, from Kiryat Ata junction. But not only this: They also replacing the old lampposts themselves for no reasons.
Right now, the old and reliable AEG Koffer 150 lampposts with 250W HPS lamps are disconnected, and the new LED lampposts working.
There are several LED lanterns on temporary lampposts at the nearest circle before this LEDding, which replaced several 250W HPS Koffer 150 lanterns.

Man that sucks It's only a matter of time before Ohio does something quite similar.
They've already installed a whole bunch of random LED's on intersections. But in terms of street lighting, I haven't seen LED's at a high
percentage just yet. Here, it's mainly still HPS.
I'm actually a little surprised your country has been ramping up LED's significantly, compared to some states here, like Ohio.

They've already done it around here. Very few HPS left, and apart from the police station car park across the street, no MV at all. Haven't seen any MH recently either, there might still be a few SOX lanterns on an industrial estate a few miles away, but not been there for ages so can't be certain.

All of he rest areas on I-70 between Columbus and the Indiana line are almost completely LED now . The city of Columbus is already spot replacing with LED's . However, the newly rebuilt section of I-71 just south of downtown Columbus has brand new HPS high masts installed ! I don't know WHAT they're thinking !

@Wide-lite 1000, woaaahhh... I've been to Columbus before. The street where one of my friends lived at was actually lit by
Metal Halides!! They weren't even the Tear Drop kind. I don't know what to call them. They weren't Cobras.
This was unfortunately back in late 2016, so I don't know if this is still the case or not, and she moved back in 2017.
Carmel, Indiana, has streets lit by LED's... and not surprisingly, almost ALL of those LED's are turning sickly dim yellow. If I ever
visit my friend in Indiana, I might take pictures of the lighting there. It's bad!
Anyways, I had no idea companies were still installing brand new HPS. This is very good to know!

It shocked me! When they re-did I-270 on the west side 5 or so years ago they used nothing but LED's so I figured the new lights on the south side would also be LED . WRONG !!!

They didn't also installed new LED lanterns, but also new lampposts, despite the lampposts of the 250W HPS lanterns are in good conditions. They did this also when they replaced the former 250W HPS Koffer 150 lanterns at Hadeshanim road with the current Schreder Teceo 2.

It’s possible they can’t get outreach arms for the old models anymore?, but this is a standard practice for LED, when they did our Uni-Streets they also were fitted along with new columns.

Current: UK 230V, 50Hz
Power provider: e.on energy
Street lighting in our town: Philips UniStreet LED

I think the new LED lanterns are suitable for the arms of the old lampposts with the AEG Koffer 150 lanterns.

Various lenghts of arms are used in Finland with LED and HID lanterns. At least here the arm and pole top diameters are now 60 mm, before was many sizes.

Replacing old, corroded aluminum poles is nowadays usually required. But steel poles are usually fine.

The poles of the AEG Koffer 150 don't looks corroded at all. I don't know if they are aluminum or stainless steel.

I wonder if they wanted to keep just one pole style.

You know ,I can justify when one 50 or maybe 30 watt LED replaces 250 watt HPS and gives off the same amount if light. Imagine a highway of 50 lanterns. 250x50 is 10000 watts. That's HUGE! And with 50 lanterns of 30 watts 30x50 is only 1500 watts. That's HUGE savings! But I digress. LED is not that good regarding CRI. But then again, HPS being at ~20 CRI LED is at least somewhere if 50 or 70~ CRI so better I guess.. In Lithuania all lanterns are in the process of being replaced with LED lights. In my opinion, they are better. I hate HPS for the sole reason that nobody replaces them when they orange-out at eol stage and start cycling. One of the street lights that are righ tat my doorstep is cycling every night and I HATE it, I ma seriously considering just climbing up that pole and replacing the damn 2 euro 150 watt HPS myself for gods sake..

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;

No energy saving. The LEDding of Tchernichovsky street, Haifa, resulted in a significant reduction in light output, and a very high levels of glare. Also LED lanterns have much shorter life than HID lanterns, since the LEDs can't be replaced, and in most model, the driver as well. They are essentially single use lanterns.

Could the reason why they're replacing them is because they're older (30+ years)?

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

@vytautas_lamps, I would MUCH rather prefer the cycling of HPS (after several years of service in most cases) than the
pulsating flashes from failed LED's. In almost every case of those pulsating flashes, the failures took place in
such a short amount of time of service. Very short life span of those LED's, or the components running those LED's.
And then also, dim flashing, blinking, or of course, no light at all. It's been worse than HPS. lol...
This is actually getting out of hand... so much to the point where even my little brother has spotted LED failures, and notified
me about them. So much to the point where I'm actually spotting LED failures at complete random in YouTube videos that
have absolutely nothing to do with the subject at all!
