Boylan welcomes street lighting repairs

10 February, 2015 - by Cathal Boylan

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has welcomed news that all street lighting will be repaired over the coming months.

Mr Boylan said,

“In a reply to a colleague in Strabane the Regional Development Minster Danny Kennedy has confirmed that due to increased funding that all broken street lighting will be repaired within a short period.

“I welcome the news that all lighting will be brought back to standard as this has become a health and safety issue especially in areas where multiple lights were out.

“While I welcome the news that lighting is to be repaired we should never had been put in the situation where lamps were allowed to remain out for such a long time.

“I am calling on the Minister to ensure that once the lighting has been repaired to ring fence money to ensure repairs are carried out on a regular basis so we do not return to the situation where areas were plunged into darkness.”
