PARIS ROAD STREET LIGHTING UPGRADE
As part of the recent road widening and turning lane extension of Paris Road between Travers and Break O’Day Drive, the remaining part of the project which involves the installation of seven (7) new standard Western Power street lights will commence shortly.
The majority of the cabling work will be within the verge on the south side of Paris Road and the proposed three (3) cables under Paris Road will be direct drilled to avoid the need to excavate the new seal.
Western Power contractors will undertake the cabling and drilling works under curfew to allow unobstructed access for school children during the morning and afternoon peak periods. The existing lights, on the existing overhead power poles, will be replaced with new luminaries to match the new street lights and care will be taken by Western Power to minimise any light intrusion into residential properties by installing shielding where necessary.
Traffic Management will be in place during the works and traffic controllers will be on site to ensure pedestrian and traffic disruption is kept to a minimum.
