However, when and if additional resources plus materials are available the contractor has started to carry out repairs to the older outstanding faults these will be grouped by areas for efficiency.

  • This report is in progress and I believe that the light is now fixed. However, in the storm 'Doris' the top light cover has been blown off and is dangling around the top of the street light. Maybe electrical contacts exposed?
