Wherever possible, work is scheduled alongside planned closures and upcoming schemes of work.

  • This is a separate report of these street lights not working it is located near the Petrol Station & is very poor visibility during usual hours and the risk to other road users is increased due to driver behaviour as they are now using full beam which is dazzling other drivers.
