High St - Olney receives new Street Lights

31 July 2017

Existing heritage street lights in Olney had failed a structural inspection and required upgrading MK Highways took the opportunity to upgrade to LED

MK Highways have as part of the planning ensured that the existing heritage columns were replaced with units that were visually similar including ornate decorative sleeves at the base, the lanterns chosen also closely matched the existing design whilst being fitted with new LED technology that enhanced the lighting of the highway whilst also reducing energy and maintenance costs and extended the life of the lights for up to 25 years.

Works to change four of the columns proved particularly difficult at the junction with Bridge Street because of the narrowing of the road and the space required to lift the columns into place, this required a full road closure to carry out the works over 3 days.

Work will begin in August to start a programme of LED street light replacement in the rest of the streets in Olney, this work is due to be completed by October 2017.
