UPDATE ON THE STREETLIGHTS
Last week we were notified about a fault with the street lights between Brooklyn Road and Victoria Street. This is due to a network error, which is currently being investigated by Powerco.
Since then, we have also been notified of streetlight outages on Kupe Drive, Barrett Place, Carrington Drive, Kent Street and Wyndham Street. We have logged service requests for these areas as well.
We know people have safety concerns when there are no lights, so in the meantime, we have worked with Powerco to provide a short-term solution. This requires bypassing a switch which means the streetlights will work, but they will be on 24 hours a day.
We know this is not ideal but we ask you please remain patient while we work with PowerCo to find out what is causing the fault and allow them time to repair it.
