Wokingham Borough Council remove street lights on the A329M over Coppid Beech roundabout


Street lights at risk of collapse on the A329M above Coppid Beech roundabout are being removed by Wokingham Borough Council.

A street light recently collapsed and fell between the safety barriers on this section of A329M. And as a result, the council tested all the steel columns on this section and found five in a deteriorated state and at risk of collapsing. The dangerous elements of the five columns were removed immediately to protect driver’s safety.

Whilst initial tests have been carried out and the remaining columns appear to be visually sound, the council wanted to explore their state further and is awaiting data from an ultrasonic test, which is due in the next few days.

Residents can contact the council to report any faults relating to street lighting by calling Wokingham Direct on (0118) 974 6000.
