The latest phase of the switch to more efficient and lower maintenance LED street lights in Hamilton gets underway on Tuesday 30 October on Cobham Dr.
The LED lights will be installed on Cobham Dr from the intersection with Normandy Ave to the roundabout at the southern end of Tristram St (by Pak’n Save).
The lighting changes will require temporary lane closures across the day. The timing of these closures will be carried out to minimise disruption to commuters heading into and out of the city at peak times.
Work will start at approximately 6am on one southbound lane at a time, switching to work on one of the northbound lanes once peak flows into the city ease. In the afternoon, it will be the outside northbound lane that is closed.
Road users are asked to take extra care when travelling through the area during Tuesday, with traffic management in place to ensure the safety of the teams.
A total of 67 street lights will be switched to LED during the work, while a range of other safety and maintenance activities will be carried out at the same time. This includes new ‘queue ahead’ warning signs, replacement of edge maker posts, garden maintenance and catchpit cleaning.
The LED lights installation is part of the citywide rollout of 13,000 LED streetlights.
