7d. Willowcroft Road, Spondon. Under the bridge supporting the A52 bypass is a GEC Z9536 installed by Jeremy in 1989. The installation of the lantern, control gear, wall-mounted P5 photocell (which is still the original to this day), and service cutout took place over a few days as the work was carried out on ladders, and drilling into the hard bricks of the bridge was not an easy task. A large AC Ford box is positioned below the lantern - this houses the control gear and a little double-pole cutout unit. Hi-tuf cable was used for the wiring of the cables entering this box. A smaller AC Ford box mounted below the photocell contains the service cutout - the service cable being a 4 mm˛ copper-concentric cable; originally housed in 20 mm plastic conduit though nowadays it is simply protected by some steel capping as the conduit was pulled away from the wall by vandals.
