Lighting issues - Scott Street and Logie

Steps between Pentland Avenue and Scott Street
On behalf of residents, I recently raised the need for lighting improvements in the Scott Street and Logie areas - particularly replacing the old 'orange' lighting in Scott Street and lighting the steps down from Pentland Avenue to Scott Street.

The City Council's Street Lighting Partnership has now advised me as follows:

"Re Logie - most is converted to white light but we did discuss converting Scott Street to white light ... and hope to do this either before the end of March or early in the new financial year.

Re the Path/steps - we looked at putting lights on the stairs.   Unfortunately it's just not technically feasible and the costs would not justify since there is a lit route via the end of Scott Street."

The upgrading of the lighting in Scott Street is to be welcomed.
