Labour Westminster Councillors have managed to get a row of street lights in Edgware Road fixed after they were left broken for four years!
A section of Edgware Road, a well populated residential area, was plunged in to darkness after a failure from Transport for London to repair the lights left residents concerned for their safety.
A local resident contacted Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg expressing concern over the lack of light in the Parsons House area of the street. With trees concealing the only working light, he stressed that the deep pavement had become very dangerous and difficult to cross over the last few years, especially in the winter months. Following the resident’s comments the Labour Group immediately got in touch with TfL and the lights have now finally been repaired.
Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg said;
“It is staggering that the lights had taken so long to fix. It is unacceptable that residents were left without light for so many years with TfL and Conservative Little Venice ward councillors doing nothing about it. I am very glad that we have managed to get the lights fully working again and I hope this makes a positive difference to the lives of residents in the area.”
