The conventional underground ducting was utilised for both communication and electricity. Due to the nature of the exercise the Division had to ensure all the materials and installation met the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission’s (T&Tec’s) specifications for public safety.
The underground lighting networks provide homeowners with the security and comfort as well as an aesthetic appeal to the housing development. The risks associated with overhead lines, including kite flying and other outdoor activities, have been eliminated.
The Division is pleased that all parties came together and overcame the challenges on this project. We are satisfied that this underground street lighting exercise serves to inform on future public housing developments.
