‘Light at the end of the tunnel’ for Kilpeddar as public lights to be fixed by Dec 4th

Minister Simon Harris has confirmed that work is underway on getting Kilpeddar’s lights switched on in the coming weeks.

After raising the issue with the ESB in recent weeks, Simon Harris has now confirmed that work is underway in order to get Kilpeddar Village’s lighting switched on.

Last August, funding was finally approved for new footpaths and public lighting. However, the connections for the lighting are not operational yet and this has caused much confusion in the village.

A local ESB Networks Team will be working on the light connections this week and are planning to complete the work by December 4th.

Speaking today Minister Simon Harris said “I am very glad to hear that there is light at the end of the tunnel for Kilpedder Village.

“For months this has been an issue I have been aware of and have been following up on. As far as I understand the certificate for the connections were issued weeks ago and therefore the lights should already be on.

“It’s clearly in the interest of everybody’s safety that we get the lights on as soon as possible. We know that as we head into much darker days, these lights are vital for people’s welfare.

“It is a positive step forward that the local ESB Networks team is to start completing the connections so we can get the lights switched on at the start of next month.

Minister Harris concluded :“I intend on following up on this issue until I am assured that all the necessary works are completed and the residents in Kilpedder are satisfied with the lighting in their village.”
