Update from Ben Howard. LBB Traffic Officer:
UK Power Networks (UKPN) have confirmed that they have still been unable to fix their fault. This means that further repairs will be ongoing and the lights will be moving up somewhere between Thicket Road and Oakfield Road. UKPN have advised that they will be surveying the area this evening to work out where the next excavation will be. Reinstatement will be taking place over the next two days and I will be meeting UKPN on site on Wednesday morning to agree what traffic management will be in place for the next stage of works.
I will send an additional update on Wednesday afternoon after the meeting and will be able to provide you with some more information, although at the moment it’s looking like we will be having lights for at least another week.
I will speak to UKPN regarding the lack of workmanship on site over the weekend, but am guessing it may be due to them not finding the fault and stopping works earlier than expected.
