Street light replacement in Oughtibridge and Worrall

9 Dec

New Street Light Works

Your current street lights will shortly be replaced with state of the art LED technology. These are designed to improve the overall quality of street lighting across the city.
This work is due to start early January 2016 until the end of April 2016.
Installing a new street light is a complex process and each stage needs to be completed before a street light is installed. The stages include:
1. Marking the position of the new street light on the pavement to comply with British Standards of Illumination (this may mean moving the position of the existing street light)
2. Digging a hole in the pavement so the new street light can be installed
3. Installing the new column
4. Connecting the new column to the electricity mains
5. Removing the old column
6. Reinstating the pavement
Please note there will be a gap between each of the above stages while the electrical connections are co-ordinated. The installation process can take up to 6 weeks to complete.
Vehicle Crossings
If you currently park on the street and would like to create your own drive way, you will need to get permission for a vehicle crossing to gain access across the verge and/or pavement. If you would like to pay for one to be installed during the proposed works – or if you currently have an unauthorised vehicle crossing – please apply for one as soon as possible.
Application forms can be downloaded from our website:
