Street Lighting Improvements – Linthouse Lane, Wednesfield. Councillor Phil Bateman said “There is some good news for Wednesfield North. Linthouse Lane one of the most important link roads in the Ward is going to see new investment. The whole of the Lane is going to get new street lighting. This is an important facility that will have a huge effect on the driving conditions during the night, as well as improving the light for pedestrians.”

Alan Johnson Highways Operation Manager, at The City of Wolverhampton, is to write to all householders in the lane stating “I am pleased to inform you that street lighting improvement work in Linthouse Lane, is to begin soon. This will involve the complete replacement of the streetlights in the road.

The street lighting is being upgraded to meet the current standards for this type of road. In most cases we are locating the new street lights as close to the existing positions as possible and when not possible we have located the new street lights in positions that avoid causing obstructions to driveways. All new street lights will be positioned at the rear of the footpath or in the grass verge. The positions will shortly be marked on site in yellow paint, should you have any queries regarding these positions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Following installation of the new columns the electricity company, Weston Power Distribution, will connect them to their underground network and at the same time disconnect the redundant ones, which will then be removed by our contractor.Please accept my apologies in advance for any inconvenience. We will make every effort to complete the work as quickly and efficiently as possible. In the meantime, if you have any questions or require further information please do not hesitate to contact Robert Mellor on 01902 551854.”
