Gloucestershire County Council has been undertaking a major project to upgrade streetlighting, with the main aim being to meet its carbon reduction target of 60% by 2020.
Skanska UK PLC has been engaged to carry out these works.
Work to upgrade the lighting in residential areas has been taking place during the last 24 months . Skanska is now returning to the local area to complete these conversions along with traffic route lighting. This remaining work will include wall brackets and wooden pole-mounted units as well as heritage lanterns in some areas.
Work in Upper Rissington is expected to take place during August.
This work may necessitate the need to temporarily reduce the pavement width and to use barriers to ensure work can be carried out safely. Where wall-mounted units on private properties are to be converted, we will inform the individual owners of the necessary works, prior to starting.
During this period, on-street parking may be affected. Residents and pedestrians are asked to be patient and Skanska will do their best to minimise any inconvenience to you.
