This light is directly adjacent to NEACA Centre so that now very dark at entrance during home time of the Nursery as clocks have gone back.

Can you please provide an update of when these lights will be fixed. It has been nearly 2 months since this was first reported to you.

Situation along all of this alley way is now very dangerous . There are now 4 lights out and you cannot see where walls fences grass verges etc are. Surely 4 light out in one alley way is worth looking at. Its a muggers paradise

As the above post states, there are now numerous lights out in the area, how many have to be reported before your Contractor goes out & fix them? What SLAs do you have in place with your Contractor? This is becoming a very dangerous situation, there are many children, women & elderly people using the footpaths & they should be able to feel safe when walking. Please can you find out when these lights will be fixed.

Thank you for your report, I can confirm unit 10 on Peachcroft cycletrack has no supply and this has been passed to Scottish and Southern Energy to rectify. I have asked our contractor to attend and test the remaining units for supply or to try and rectify. They have attended previously but due to the location of the lights they require specialist equipment to check the lamp/lantern. We currently do not have an SLA with our contractor as it is a temporary contract brought in to cover for emergencies only.

Lamp number 16 is still not working, nearly 3 months after first being reported. Can you please provide an update as to when this will be fixed. How long does it take to get "specialist equipment"? Why encourage people to report faults then do nothing about them!!!!

Our current contractor is still only able to attend emergencies only, however we do have a new contractor in place that will shortly be carrying out the backlog of outstanding works. I apologise for the delay in getting these units repaired.
