The scheme will involve the replacement of the existing lights with a new LED lighting system.  The new LED lights will retain the architectural style and daytime appearance of the original lanterns and will also improve the night time environment and uniformity of lighting.

The Department has carefully programmed the work operations and traffic management in order to minimise inconvenience to the public. Lane restrictions are not planned, however, road users should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.

In order to help ensure the safety of road users and road workers, the public is asked to comply with all temporary traffic restrictions and to take extra care when travelling in the vicinity of the works.

All work will be carried out in line with current public health and safety advice with safe systems of working in place for staff and contractors.

Subject to weather conditions, the scheme is expected to be completed by mid-February 2021.
