Co Armagh Town Set To Benefit From New LED Lighting

Construction News Image
A £180,000 LED lighting upgrade scheme is set to get underway in the County Armagh town of Portadown.

Work will begin to replace existing lights with a new LED street lighting system on Monday 18 October.

Extending from Bridge Street up to Hanover Street, the new LED lighting system will retain the architectural style and appearance of the original lanterns and will improve the night time environment, through improved quality and uniformity of lighting. Work will take place on William Street, Thomas Street, Edward Street, Mandeville Street, West Street and Woodhouse Street.

Announcing the new project, Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon said: "This significant investment will benefit everyone who travels and works in the area. I am committed to addressing the issues which matter most to people and street lighting services are crucial in ensuring those driving, cycling, wheeling and walking can do so safely within their communities.

"This investment provides new LED lighting technology in Portadown Town Centre. It is important that adequate street lighting not only improves the quality of lighting but is also more energy efficient, given my commitment to climate action.

"I would like to thank the public and local residents in advance for their cooperation and ask that they comply with all temporary traffic restrictions while these much needed works are completed."

All work involving lane closures will be carried out during off peak times Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 4.30pm.

Road users should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.

The Department for Infrastructure expects the project to reach completion by the end of November 2021.
