New street lighting will soon be illuminating a section of Mountain Park Drive.

Decorative concrete poles, replacing steel ones that date back to the 1970s, are in place and awaiting installation of four-sided coach-style lanterns with LED lights, said project manager Mike Field of the City of Hamilton.

That should happen within the next few weeks, he said.

Problems with the wiring of the old lights were discovered during road reconstruction last year. Temporary lighting has been provided atop standard wood utility poles in the interim.

“The previous lighting was inadequate for the roadway,” noted Field.

The LED lighting will be more effective and use half the power, he said.
