Ballinamore Area councillor, Martin Kenny has welcomed progress on the repair of the solar powered street lights on the Canal Road in Ballinamore. There are 19 lights which have not been working properly for the past year due to problems with the panels and the batteries.
“This is a busy road, which is used by many people out for a walk and without lighting it is very dangerous on the dark winter evenings,” said Cllr Kenny. “For the past few months I have been speaking to council engineers who have been working with the providers of the solar lights to have them repaired or replaced.
“A solution which includes strengthening the brackets holding the solar panels and replacing the batteries has now been worked out. I have been assured work will begin shortly to get these solar lights working again.”
