Market Street left In The Dark After Lights Failure.
Whilst returning from a job on late on Monday evening, driving towards Market Street from The Grove direction, I could not help but notice there were no street lights on upper Market Street.
When I got home I sent off an email to the Department for Infrastructure to check why the lights were off.
A dark street is not good for personal safety or the security of business premises.
I was surprised to learn that I was the first to report the fault.
A Department for Infrastructure (DfI) spokesman said: “The Department has not received any reports of defective street lighting in Market Street, Downpatrick.
“This fault has now been logged and will be investigated today.
“An on-line reporting facility for logging street lighting faults has been made available for citizens on the NI Direct web site, under ‘Street Lighting and reporting a fault.’
“Street lighting faults can also be reported by telephone to 0300 200 7899.”
So now we all know how to report a street lighting fault!
But I still don’t know what caused the fault!
