Street lights are ei­ther on all day, or never on

The Star Early Edition - - METRO WATCH -

LAWRENCE LEONG WRITES: A light has been on dur­ing the day for the past few months at the Max Good­man Park coun­cil flats in Sixth Av­enue, Bez Val­ley. It is op­po­site my res­i­dence. I hope you can help be­cause I do not know who to con­tact to put an end to this waste­ful­ness. CITY POWER REPLIES: This has been re­paired. HENRY MAYHEN WRITES: We have re­ported non-func­tion­ing street lights to City Power for months and they still won’t come out. We are on the cor­ner of the Univer­sity of Jo­han­nes­burg’s stu­dent res­i­dence in Beit and Pearse streets, Doorn­fontein.

Stu­dents go for classes and study at night at the li­brary and are forced to walk through the dark streets.

It is un­safe for them. We have reg­u­lar prob­lems with cell­phone and bag-snatch­ing.

I would ap­pre­ci­ate it if you could help in get­ting City Power to fix the street lights. CITY POWER REPLIES: The lights have been fixed.

ABEL MOMPEI WRITES: For more than three months the street lights in Elias Mot­soaledi Road, for­merly Rood­e­poort Road, have not been work­ing. This is a main street join­ing Rood­e­poort and Soweto. Could you please help? MOMPEI WRITES AGAIN: After about six months of dark­ness in one of the busiest and big­gest streets in Dob­sonville, Soweto, the lights have fi­nally been fixed. Many thanks to Metro Watch.
