Street lights are either on for 24 hours or not at all

Comment on this story

Rajeev Batohi writes: For most of last year, we did not have working street lights in Melrose, or else they burnt 24 hours a day. In November, the street lights went out again. They came on for two days in January, again working for 24 hours. Now they are off again.

Can you help us to get City Power to properly correct the situation, so we that have street lights restored and that they operate at night only?

Batohi writes again: I am pleased to report that the street lights have been fixed. On Cecil Avenue, they seem to be fine, coming on at night only. But in some other streets in Melrose – Jellicoe Avenue, for example – they seem to be back on 24 hours.
