Marston, Summertown and Wolvercote areas are the focus for continuing streetlighting improvement work

Oxfordshire County Council’s £3.8m programme to improve 3,200 streetlights in the county continues in the Marston, Summertown and Wolvercote areas of Oxford from August 21.

The streetlights are being replaced with new steel columns and higher quality LED light solution which also reduces energy and future on-going maintenance requirements.

The streets where work is scheduled to take place from Monday, August 21 are:

  • Jack Straws Lane, Lynn Close, Nicholson Road, Ouseley Close in Marston

  • Bainton Road, Grove Street, Rogers Street, Capel Close, Hamilton Road, Hobson Road, Kingscross Road, Lucerne Road, Middle Way, Oakthorpe Place, Oakthorpe Road, Portland Road, South Parade, Stratfield Road, Summerhill Road, Thorncliffe Road in Summertown

  • Clifford Place, Dove House Close, Elmthorpe Road, Home Close, Millway Close, Osborne Close, Rosamund Road, Rowland Close in Wolvercote

The finance for the scheme as a whole comes from a £2.8m central Government grant and £1m of Oxfordshire County Council capital funding.
