Crazy cut

This morning - Thursday, March 15 - a group of council workmen drove up to a streetlight on Ramsden Wood Road, Walsden, removed it, filled the hole and drove off with it.

I know the council is making cuts, but really how much is one street light costing them per year and why were residents not consulted?

On one side of this stretch of road is a line of terraced properties, all leading directly on to the road with no pavement in between. Also a group of young boys often play along the road of an evening.

This leaves us stepping into an unlit road after dark, and a busier road than you might think with the new estate just a little futher along.


Astounded, Ramsden Wood Road
