Dickson Says Whitehead and Islandmagee Residents ‘In the Dark’ After Street Lights Removed
October 4, 2018
East Antrim Alliance MLA, Stewart Dickson, has expressed his concern after it emerged that the Department for Infrastructure (DFI) has removed streetlights in Whitehead and Islandmagee.
Mr Dickson commented: “I have been contacted by numerous residents of both Whitehead and Islandmagee over the pasts two days, who are upset by the unexplained removal of streetlights. These are rural, but well populated areas, and streetlights help keep pedestrians safe, particularly schoolchildren – so the removal of lighting therefore presents a danger to safety.
“I have written to DFI asking for a full explanation of this development, which I understand was done without consultation. I am seeking the reinstatement of the lighting. Attempting to save money is not an excuse to make our rural roads more dangerous for pedestrians and drivers, particularly as the dark winter months approach.”
