PEOPLE living in County Road have been warned of disruption this week as the council continues its £6.9m street lights upgrade.

Pedestrian crossings will be closed and some lanes may also shut as old lamps are replaced with environmentally-friendly LED street lighting.

Work will be carried out between 7pm and 11pm this week. 

In a statement on social media, the council said: "This week, we will be upgrading the lights and columns (if necessary) along County Road.

"The work will be done between 7pm and 11pm and due to the nature of the work, there may be a need for some lane closures to be in place while it’s carried out. Access will be maintained for residents throughout the work.

"Pedestrian crossings that are located near to the work will be temporarily shut off while the work is carried out, so please use another suitable crossing if needed."

This is part of the council's town-wide rollout of the new LED lighting, which it says is now 90 per cent complete and once finished will mean 26,000 lights have been switching to more energy efficient alternatives. 

Anyone who has had any issues with the new LED street lights, or any street lights at all is encouraged to report the fault to the council on their website.
