You may have noticed the new silver lights that have been erected in Ruckholt Road in advance of the Olympics. They look very nice but are they better than the old ones? Residents of Ruckholt Road and Alexandra Road are complaining that the new lights are not as good as the old ones. The old lamposts were staggered on both sides of the road giving light to both sides of the road. The new lamposts have only been put on one side of the road which is making one side bright and the other side in darkness.
Has this been a costly mistake? The Council say that the lighting specification of the new lights is of a higher standard than that of the old lights, but they will investigate residents concerns and report back. We will keep you informed of their investigation.
