(2) Does the Territory and Municipal Services Directorate intend to replace inefficient lighting in Canberra before the current globes fail or only as they fail.

(3) What is the expected timescale for replacing all street lighting in Canberra with energy-efficient globes and what will be the annual cost of this program.

(4) What annual savings in energy costs and greenhouse gas reductions will the planned replacement program yield.

(5) What has been the financial expenditure on energy efficient street lighting since 2007 and what energy savings have these upgrades already resulted in.

(6) Are there plans to install extra lighting along bike paths and in public open spaces; if so, which installations have been prioritised.
