Published on: Wednesday, 04-February-2015

Knowsley residents living in Swanside, Huyton are invited to attend a public consultation event on Thursday 19 February to find out more about the next phase of the borough’s multi-million pound street lighting programme.

Knowsley Council is working with SSE Contracting to carry out a multi-million pound revamp of the borough’s street lighting.

The next phase of the project will see work starting in Swanside at the end of March.

Members of the local community are invited to attend a consultation event being held on Thursday 19 February at Swanside Community Centre at 6.15pm.
Representatives from both Knowsley Council and SSE Contracting will be on-hand to answer any questions residents may have regarding the work that will be taking place.

The event will begin with a presentation outlining the street lighting scheme, along with details of the timescales and benefits it will bring to the area. This will last for around 15 minutes and will be followed by an opportunity for residents to ask questions.

Cllr Dave Lonergan, Knowsley Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Economy and Skills, said, “The street lighting project is a major investment for Knowsley and it’s important that we keep residents informed as the scheme progresses.

“I urge members of the Swanside community to go along to the consultation event to see what the project will involve and how it will benefit them.”

The four-year street lighting project will replace the majority of the borough’s street lighting, traffic signs and bollards with the latest, energy efficient technology.

The video which will be played at the event, giving residents a better idea of what to expect from the new lighting, is available to watch on You Tube.
