ABC Highway lights being repaired

THE GOVERNMENT ELECTRICAL Engineering Department, which falls under the aegis of the Ministry of Transport and Works, has embarked on a sustained programme to restore full street lighting on the ABC Highway.

In a release issued today, MTW said many of the lights on the highway had begun to fail almost simultaneously, either as a result of a transformer problem or through failure of the bulbs.

“The problem was made worse since many of the parts needed to repair the lights could not be sourced locally,” the ministry said.

Chief electrical officer Tyrone White said lighting between University Hill and BET Hill has already been restored.

Work continued today on the stretch from the Garfield Sobers Roundabout to Graeme Hall and when this area has been fully illuminated workmen will move from Graeme Hall to Newton.

The work is going in a southerly direction and is being carried out from 8.30 a.m. to 4.30 a.m. daily.

Road users are urged to exercise caution. (PR/NB)
