Two Million Pound Power Project on Caton Road

The region's power network operator, Electricity North West, are upgrading the power network in Lancaster, Morecambe and the surrounding areas to ensure customers receive the power they need for years to come.

Daniel Garner, transmission north manager for Electricity North West, said: "We take great pride in powering the lives of more than 22,000 customers in Lancaster and Morecambe and now is the time to make sure everyone continues to receive the power they need when they need it for another 60 years and more. We know that although we've worked hard to keep disruption to a minimum, digging up local roads is never easy for people and commuters, so we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their patience and support to allow us to carry out this essential work safely."

To allow engineers to safely carry out the work there will be temporary traffic lights on Caton Road until Friday 17th February.

The second phase of the work will start in the middle of February which will include temporary traffic lights on Owen Road lasting approximately to the end of March.
