Blundstone Arena Management advises works are currently being undertaken on the stadium's light poles ahead of the 2018-19 cricket season.

These works include replacing globes, installing gear for Spidercam and routine checks for any signs of fatigue and damage.

It has been decided to carry out some preventative maintenance on the poles whilst the riggers are on site.

As is the case when working with large equipment at heights, heavy machinery is required to undertake this safely.

There is a requirement to maintain a safe work area cordoned off and there is no danger to the public.

Works on the remaining poles will continue Friday and Monday.
