05/06/07 – Lighting Improvements
I am pleased to report that as part of the on going improvement program in Nythe to upgrade the street lighting, the following roads will be upgraded this year.
With all three roads we shall be extending the lighting onto the footpaths that link these roads to West View Cycle Track. This will give a better light transition into these roads off of the cycle track.
In addition the new improved lighting installed along Merlin Way from the junction of Covingham Drive, around The Whitehart Roundabout, and up to Gable Cross Roundabout was carried out by Southern Electric Contracting, on behalf of Swindon Borough Council, and Swindon Commercial Services.
We arranged for the work to be carried out at night to reduce impact to traffic and residents. Our contractors also replaced the electric supplies to these new columns at the same time and anywhere that needed this to be done across a road, was installed without digging up the carriageway (by boring under the carriageway) – particularly useful as it had recently been resurfaced.
If residents see any lighting problems, they can report these easily and for free on, 0800 015 0096.
