The following photographs were taken on Saturday, 13th November 2010:

Most of the outgoing columns along here were fitted with GEC Z9464 90 W SOX lanterns.

This new column was installed as part of an earlier scheme, when Cranmer Road was relit.

The blue (70 Lux) SC1000 photocell is evidence of this; the new lanterns installed on the Chequers Road scheme are fitted with 35 Lux cells.

These photographs were taken just in time - during my visit, the old columns were being decommissioned and the new columns powered up - a workman can be seen in the excavation around the bases of the two columns:

An integrally-geared Philips MA 90 was fitted to the next column.

A Thorn Alpha 4 followed.

The A52 dual carriageway runs parallel with Chequers Road at this point.

This Alpha 4 was fitted with a Parmar/Venture 90 W SOX ballast.
