Street lights tested

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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.
