10th August, 2016: The Division of Settlements and Labour is pleased to announce that its street lighting exercise at the Homes of Adventure, Plymouth is complete. As of August 4th 2016, a total of 27 fluorescent dusk-to-dawn lights illuminate the community. We wish to sincerely thank the homeowners of Adventure Housing Development for their patience and understanding exercised during a long arduous wait.

Cognizant of the discomfort homeowners experienced the Division kept the community apprised during the street lighting exercise. The challenges experienced were primarily associated with this innovative approach taken by the Tobago House of Assembly to modernise street lighting in our public housing developments.

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.
