Coun­cil re­moves in­ef­fec­tive CBD foot­path light­ing

Isis Town and Country - - Life -

BUND­ABERG Re­gional Coun­cil will re­move strip light­ing in­stalled in the CBD foot­path as “ef­fects light­ing” on Sun­day.

The light­ing has been in­ef­fec­tive for a num­ber of years with the fail­ure caused through a steady de­grad­ing of the light­ing and fit­tings over time.

Coun­cil’s di­vi­sional rep­re­sen­ta­tive Cr Tony Ricciardi said ini­tial work would be car­ried out this Sun­day be­tween 3pm and 9pm.

“The work will in­volve use of cut­ting tools that do cre­ate some dust,” Cr Ricciardi said.

“It was de­cided to con­duct the work dur­ing th­ese hours to min­imise any in­con­ve­nience to busi­nesses dur­ing nor­mal week day trad­ing.”

Cr Ricciardi said the cur­rent light­ing would be re­placed over com­ing weeks with LED lights, which were much more re­li­able and en­ergy ef­fi­cient.

Coun­cil apol­o­gised for any in­con­ve­nience caused dur­ing this es­sen­tial main­te­nance work.
