Roads to shut for light­ing re­newal

Lennox Herald - - NEWS - Lor­raine Weir

Mo­torists are fac­ing traf­fic dis­rup­tion as work is on­go­ing to im­prove light­ing on the A82.

Sec­tions of the road will be shut overnight un­til Tues­day, March 14, while 16 lamp­posts are re­placed with brighter, more en­ergy ef­fi­cient al­ter­na­tives.

Each night, parts of the road at the Dal­not­tar in­ter­change and at the Ersk­ine Bridge will close.

Scot­land Transerv’s ma­jor bridges man­ager said: “We are work­ing to im­prove light­ing on the Dal­not­tar in­ter­change.

“This LED light­ing not only helps to re­duce longterm main­te­nance costs, but can cut en­ergy us­age by up to 70 per­cent, help­ing Scot­land to meet its longterm en­vi­ron­men­tal tar­gets.”

Scot­land TranServ’s op­er­at­ing com­pany rep­re­sen­ta­tive Andy Fraser, added: “The health and safety of our work­ers, and that of the mo­tor­ing public is of ut­most im­por­tance to Scot­land Transerv and that is why it will be nec­es­sary to im­ple­ment these short-term traf­fic man­age­ment mea­sures dur­ing this im­por­tant pro­gramme of work.”

LED light­ing not only helps to re­duce main­te­nance costs but can cut en­ergy us­age by up to 70%
