Traffic lights will be in operation on Fore Street from the 7th November
As many will know, Western Power have over the last few weeks been replacing many of Porthleven’s electricity poles as part of their £800k investment in infrastructure. The company is concentrating on those areas which have had a high number of faults over the last few years. Many of these poles are over 40 years old.
As part of these works, there will be a requirement to install temporary traffic lights between 9am and 5pm from Monday to Friday from the 7th November for one week. There will also be no-parking cones placed in the parking bays. The traffic lights will be removed at night or when they are not needed. All these measures have been approved by Highways.
Western Power have asked the community to be patience whilst they carry out these essential works and will carry out the work as quickly as possible to avoid any disruption.
If anything changes, I will keep you updated.
