Replacement of life expired street lighting columns

If you have received a letter or have read the notice attached to the streetlight in your road or received a notice on your car informing you that we are going to replace the streetlights in your road, please read this guidance.

The work start dates for the replacement of the streetlights will be highlighted on the notice attached to the streetlights in your road, no later than one week before the start date of the work.

Work in your street will be between the hours of 8am and 5pm

The full list of roads can be found below. Please check regularly as new roads are added regularly.

If on the day when the streetlights are being replaced, you need assistance related to the street lighting works please only approach the site supervisor.

If you need to leave your house and your property is within the safe working zone or protected area for the engineers surrounding the streetlight please do so with care, try to keep to the Government’s guidance for social distancing. If you have difficulty please attract the attention of the site supervisor.

It may have been necessary to close your road to through vehicle traffic to provide the required area for social distancing, while the work is in progress. Access for emergency services, deliveries and residents will be maintained at all times

If you need to cross the road to avoid the pedestrian or site safety barriers, please do so with care and continue on safely passed the site.

Our workers will try their best to keep to the Government guidance for social distancing however there may some occasions when this is not possible due to the physical nature of the work, all workers will wear personal protective equipment to protect each other and members of the public.

Car parking

If parking signs or cones  have been put out on your street in preparation of the street lighting works and / or  you have  received a letter on your car asking you to move your car for the duration of street lighting works, please repark your car legally, safely and courteously  to other residents away from the street light and outside of the coned area. When work is completed  and the safety  barriers have been removed, cars can be returned to their parking spaces.
