Alex Easton MLA has today accused TNI street light division of not checking their street lights.
Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:
“ It is becoming quite apparent that TNI NI are not checking to see what street lights are not working across North Down, I in frustration have had to walk the streets of Millisle, Donaghadee, Springwell in Groomsport, Kilcooley, Rathgill, Bloomfield , Breezemount, Conlig and Whitehill to personally collect the street lamp numbers for the street lights that are not working. I have reported so many lights that are not working that I can’t get them reported quick enough. The response time is really not quick enough and I continually have to keep rechecking if the lights are attended to. I really should not be having to walk round to report lights out and TNI street light division should be send out someone to identify were the lights are out instead of waiting for so many to go out which clogs up their system with repairs, it time to get on top of the situation get someone out to look for street lights that are out and deal with them.”
