Sign and Lighting Installation

Bringing Christmas sparkle to Regent Street

The UK’s Specialist Vehicle division was recently utilised to help transform London’s Regent Street by assisting with the installation of the annual Christmas lighting display.

Working with an installation company, we provided two 38 metre operated truck mounted platforms over three weeks of night time installations to help create this world famous festive display.

The versatility of truck mounted platforms enabled our operators to drive the machines in and out of location easily, as well as manoeuvring once in situ. This was a key requirement for this job due to the limitations of working in one of London’s busiest thoroughfares, which could not be closed for the installation.

The truck mounts have a working height of 38 meters and a significant horizontal outreach of 27 meters which allowed the operators to span across the street from one side to the other. In total 27 lines of lights were hung along a one mile stretch of Regent Street.
