Dear Mr Cleary,
Request for Street Lighting Column – Trinity Lane, Birkenhead
Thank you for your enquiry regarding the above.
It has been agreed that an 8 metre street lighting column will be erected half way along Trinity Lane. An instruction was raised for the Council’s contractor on the 13th August 2011 to supply and install the column. Due to the lack of vehicle access on the lane it will be necessary to use a folding post and this is a special order item. The manufacturer has informed the contractor that the column should be delivered week commencing the 24/10/11.
The column will then be assembled and should be installed within 5 working days following delivery.
Once the column is erected the work to connect the electricity supply cable to the column will be carried out by Scottish Power. Under the terms of the Ofgem Service Level Agreement Scottish Power have up to 35 working days to complete the works after they have been advised that the post is in situ. To shorten this process as much as possible, the order to proceed with the connection works will be e-mailed to Scottish Power as soon as the column is delivered to the contractor.
Our contractor have visited column 2 Hornby Street, Birkenhead and have repaired the Day Burning fault.
