Street lights tested
ERGON Energy is currently conducting night-time tests of street lights in a trial area including Proserpine. General manager of service delivery Steve Leighton said the work would ensure that the steel street lights were operating safely and effectively and had not been damaged during recent weather events.
“We are advising the community in case people become suspicious or concerned with this activity being done in their streets,” he said.
“The tests need to be done at night when the lights are working to ensure the best possible chance of success.”
The tests started on Monday, March 31 and will continue until the end of April.
