South Armagh street lighting community survey completed

street-lightSlieve Gullion Area Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Larkin along with local activists in Forkhill completed their quarterly survey of street lighting in the village last week.

“Carrying out this survey several times a year is a much more efficient way to ensure that our villages are properly illuminated than the reporting of single faults,” he told Newry Times.

“This regular survey can identify recurring problems and ultimately saves time, money and inconvenience. It also reassures communities that Sinn Féin is on the ground working for them resolving issues and improving services.”

Commenting on the most recent survey the Sinn Féin representative explained, “This week we discovered twelve street lights out and have honed in on an ongoing fault with the lighting at Park Urney.

“Having spoken with residents who are frustrated by the lack of progress on this issue, I contacted both the street lighting division in Newry and the Fold housing association. I am hopeful that a resolution to the problem will be secured quickly but if not I will continue to pursue the issue until it is sorted.”

I welcome the commitment by the Minister to our District.”
