Piccadilly Circus billboard lights switched back on after nine-month upgrade

The iconic electronic billboards of Piccadilly Circus have finally been switched back on after nine months of upgrade works.

Renovation work has converted six illuminated advertising boards into one ultra-high definition curved screen, which means the space can now be dominated by a single ad - writes standard.co.uk.

The screens went dark in January, marking the start of the longest blackout of the Piccadilly lights since the Blitz.

It was the first time they were switched off for an extended period of time since 1949.

An estimated 100 million people pass through Piccadilly Circus every year, according to Landsec which operates the screens, making it one of the world's most prime advertising spaces.
