Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper has said that the Road Service is to look at a number of street lighting problems affecting residents in the Glen area.
“Residents were rightly concerned about the large number of street lights that were not working and impact that this was having on home and car security and the general safety of walking in streets with very little lighting during the hours of darkness.
“In relation to the Glenbank Road area it’s been discovered there is a cable fault in the Glen estate with approximately eight lights affected. This is a group outage as opposed individual lights failing. And they are trying to get these repaired as soon as possible
“Roads Service have also said that the lighting system in Ardglen Park is approaching the end of its design life at this stage. And that it would benefit from a full upgrade including columns and cable but it depends on future budgets as this year’s financial budget is fully committed.I will be pushing them to ensure that this happens as soon as funding becomes available.
