Lighting column improvements

The Council is to renew lighting columns in a number of Low Fell streets in 2019. The new columns will be taller order to improve light dispersal. The streets receiving new columns are Arundel Gardens, Beacon Street, Beaconsfield Avenue, Beaconsfield Crescent, Church Road, Clement Street, Cross Keys Lane, Derwent Gardens, Egremont Gardens, Florence Avenue, Grove Road, Harcourt Park, Harcourt Street, Hill Top Gardens, Kellfield Road, Lowrey’s Lane, Melrose Avenue, Primrose Gardens, Rock Grove, Rosslyn Avenue, Villa View, Weathercock Lane and Wilson’s Lane. Work will start in the New Year. Columns will normally remain in their current locations though some will be moved to the rear of the footpath.
