Works commencement update for the Municipal Districts of Bandon-Kinsale, Macroom and West Cork

March 20, 2023

Le Chéile Lighting Specialists, acting on behalf of Cork County Council as the Lead Authority on the Public Lighting Energy Efficiency Project, South West Region (PLEEP-SW), we will be carrying out public lighting works at a number of locations across Cork County.

Works commencing: 24th March 2023 in the Municipal District Bandon-Kinsale and will progress through the Municipal District of Macroom and West Cork in Quarter two and three.

The project supported by the Road Management Office (RMO) in conjunction with various Local Authorities across Ireland, will see a number of regions countrywide retrofitted in stages with energy efficient LED street lights over the next three years as part of the government’s drive to assist Local Authorities in reaching their energy efficiency targets by 2030.
The South West Region will see over 77,000 public street lights retrofitted across counties Cork, Clare, Limerick, Kerry and Waterford over the next 30 months as the first stage of the project. Cork County Council is the lead Local Authority for South West Region.

Our works in the most part will present little or no disruption to the public or businesses within your area, and your power will not be interrupted. Some deployment of temporary traffic management may be required in areas of high traffic volume or narrow roads to facilitate safe access to streetlights for work crews. In rare instances, access to private premises or businesses may be affected where civil (excavation) works are necessary.

Should you have any questions regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to contact us by any of the communication methods on this leaflet.

We thank you in advance for your co-operation.
