Getting things done - Steps from Pentland Avenue to Scott Street #dundeewestend

As residents will be aware, I have long campaigned for decent lighting at the steps from from Pentland Avenue to Scott Street.

The steps are well-used and often by elderly people and are dark at night - particularly in the winter months.

People have had to rely on what light reaches the area from the adjacent roads - a most unsatisfactory situation.

It has proved technically challenging to provide street lighting here but I am delighted at the final outcome.

The Street Lighting Partnership Manager has now advised me as follows :

"We have finally been able to complete the installation of lighting on the steps at Scott Street. I know that this has been a very difficult and complex installation for the team but they have finally managed to achieve it.

I hope that they will provide some assistance to the community in that area in the hours of darkness and I am confident that they will make a considerable difference."
