Street lights removed from Wokingham’s Coppid Beech roundabout


Further street lights on the A329M above Coppid Beech roundabout have bben removed by Wokingham Borough Council, after tests showed there was a small risk they could collapse.

It follows the collapse of a light last month that fell between the safety barriers on this section of the A329M. The council immediately tested all of the nearby steel columns, and found five in a deteriorated state which were quickly taken down.

Initial tests on the remaining 11 columns showed them to be largely sound, but as some of the internal results were inconclusive the council carried out further ultrasonic tests.
