  • Friars lane is a disgrace, 8th April

  • Street Lights Out of Order in Southey Street, 2nd April
    Street Lamps 383 and 384,Southey Street, Keswick I’ve had to report the same type of fault on these two street lights on four separate occasions over the past four years and on each occasion met the same problem. Step1: I report the street lights out of order via the council’s website. Four weeks later council engineers come out, check the lamps and discover that the problem comes from an Electrical North West junction box. Step 2: Council engineers go through the process of contacting Electrical North West to advise them of the problem. This takes a further four weeks. Step 3: Electrical North West then go through their own process of getting their engineers out to the junction box to fix it. This takes a further four to six weeks. As a result the whole matter takes on average twelve weeks from the time I initially report the problem, to the lamps actually functioning again. Over the past four years the total time these lights have been out of action is now approximately forty eight weeks – nearly 1 full year. I was advised by a council staff member that the root of the problem stems from the fact that Electrical North West require to upgrade the whole street lighting network in Keswick but no-one knows when that will be. In the interim this problem will keep re-occurring. These two street lamps are out of action once again. As I did not wish to go through the same lengthy process each time, I wrote to Mr Karl Melville, Area Highways & Transport Manager Cumbria Highways, on 20th March 2014 requesting that Cumbria Highways contact Electrical North West directly, asking them to send their engineers out to the junction box as soon as possible. Hopefully by taking this direct route, I would save at least eight weeks of my time and the council will save a large amount of money in the process. I am awaiting a reply. To date the street lamps are still out of action. That area of the street is now very dark at night and therefore people, especially elderly, do find difficulty is seeing safely.
