“I am pleased that lighting will be brought back up to standard as this has become a health and safety issue, especially in areas where multiple lights were out.

“While I welcome this news 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 for Infrastructure to ensure that when all current lighting repairs have been completed that the necessary funding is ring fenced to ensure that repairs can be carried out on a regular basis so that we do not end up in the situation again where there are lengthy delays and areas are left with no lighting for long periods of time.”
