Great to see this, I hope more councils start doing this.  Even
using the every other light option would make a difference.
I certainly think there is no reason for not dimming or using
every other light on the motorway on the roads.

Alas it seems that it is mainly the more remote and rural councils that are opting for this and the more urban central belt eschewing the idea...
