NEW CCTV cameras and street lights are being installed in March’s West End Park.
Work on the £90,000 scheme is due to start on Monday (August 15), with the funding coming out of Fenland District Council’s capital programme.
Installation is expected to take three weeks, with completion due on September 6.
The main works involve:
• The installation of two new CCTV cameras located at the Skate Bowl and Marylebone Bridge.
• The installation of 20 new street lights, incorporating LED technology.
• The removal of existing, defective street lights between The Brewin Chase and Marylebone Bridge.
• The installation of a new private service supply from Oxbow Crescent, leading to a new feeder pillar located near Marylebone Bridge.
• The trenching, ducting and cabling works required to connect the new lighting system.
Councillor Peter Murphy, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for the environment, said: “This is very good news for March residents. The extra lighting and cameras that we are putting in will do a lot to make people using the park feel safer and more secure as well as making it easier to combat any anti-social behaviour there.”
The main contractor undertaking the work is C.G. Godfrey, from Spalding.
