Roche welcomes long overdue street lighting for Lakelands

A local election candidate has welcomed the introduction of new street lighting into what he once described as a 'dark estate' in Bridgetown.  Mick Roche, who had been pushing for the installation of these new lights for the past few months, said that residents in Lakelands estate would have a new lease of life now.

"Up until now parts of the Lakelands estate have had no street lighting at all," Mr Roche said, "The possibility of an accident or anti social behaviour occurring was a cause of much concern and many residents were cautious about even walking to the shop after dark."

"I am glad that, after much pleading by local people, Lakelands is finally to get its new lights.  This sort of situation would not have been tolerated in Wexford town and its only right that the County Council have moved on this operation now."
