The future of street lighting is Induction, not nasty HPS lights or cr@ppy LED lights!
Preheat CFL's should make a comeback!

Only GE fixtures:

- M250A2s

- Once they installed a dozen of M250R2s in a new street.

- M400A3 (Sometimes some R3s)

- Refurbished M400A Powr/Doors

There are a few exceptions:

- They sometimes install whole rows of Lumec Helios HBS in new streets, but not in replacements.

- There is ONE refurbished Westinghouse OV-25.

Around Melbourne, they install on main roads:
Sylvania "Roadster" 150/250/400 HPS
Osram Optispan 150/250 HPS
Depends on the area but Metal Halide versions are getting more popular..
And at some special places, alot of special designs are installed to blend in.
In smaller local roads, the Sylvania Suburban 80W Mercs are the only ones used.
Majority are still the Sylvania B2224 but they are getting on to 20 years so as they die, the Suburban's are taking their place.
I should put pics up soon!
