The council will be installing 13 new street lights along the footpath that links Peterhouse Parade and Milton Mount Primary School with St Mary’s Drive and the residential areas to the south.
The path is a well-used route for residents as they access the local shops and Grattons Park, and for parents, guardians and pupils as they travel to school. The new lights will help to improve visibility along the path, particularly during winter months when the mornings and early evenings are darker.
To minimise disruption the council’s appointed contractor will be undertaking works to install the cabling and street lighting columns during the school summer holidays, with work scheduled to start on site during the week commencing 28 August. To protect tree roots, hand digging will be undertaken around the mature trees.
