I think the longest remaining section of yellow street lights in Hounslow borough may now be Burlington Lane in Chiswick (by Chiswick Station, along the E3). Although they've left random ones dotted about in a few places where they've put the new posts in a different location to the old ones, e.g. a couple of sections on Bath Road near Hounslow West
Shame to hear Heston Road has lost it's collection of Thorn Alpha 4's & Philips MA's - Harringay has also purged it's remaining examples of Philips MA's in most places though Westbury Avenue & the western part of The Roundway have both survived. Kew Road in Richmond still has Philips MA's as well and is probably the longest section of road in London with them (Castlenau did have them as well) but they are certainly now being rapidly killed off by LED's and some of the new LED lights are truly awful looking and not particularly reliable in comparison to the 40 year old sodium lights.
The LED conversion has still not restarted since it halted last year with Brixton & West Norwood Town Centres still only half done and others not done at all. There is also no sign of the 1980's columns on Stockwell Road, Stockwell Park Walk, Clapham Common North Side, a small section of Kennington Road & a small section of Kennington Lane being replaced....thankfully
