Report: Street lights never turned on

07:14 Sep 11 2019 Near Rathnew

Hi there, Wicklow Co Co I stalled 3 new public lighting poles on the road leadi g down from Centra, passing the GAA pitch, going under the train bridge in Rathnew last year. These lights have never been switched on despite my many requests. Currently four of the five streetlights are not on on this long stretch of road. I have been asking for lighting on this road for 4 years now and have been given an array of excuses as to why the council and the engineers won't switch on these lights. Another stretch of dark mornings and evenings approaches. Walking on this road is really scary at 6am when leaving for work. I have been followed on this dark road and reported it to the council with assurances that the lights would be alluminated to no avail.
I have contacted councillors to ask them to ask the council to no avail.
What do I have to do to get the cou cil and the engineers to action this?
