13 new light towers coming to Port Pirie CBD

light poles.jpgThe Port Pirie Regional Council has announced a new $150,000 project to install 13 new towers in the towns CBD.

The new stronger light-towers will allow Christmas decorations and promotional signs to hang safely reducing the risk to pedestrians and cars who pass by.

Port Pirie Regional Council chief executive officer Andrew Johnson said the old towers had become a safety concern after one of the towers fell down around 18 months ago.

The new towers will have Wi-Fi receptors on them allowing the public to connect to the internet while in the CBD.

The council advises that traffic will still be able to access Ellen Street where works are being conducted, however drivers are to be cautious as one lane each side of the median strip will be closed.

Works are expected to be finished by the end of the financial year.
