I made a post a little while back concerning the street lighting on the A13 in West Thurrock. I sent an e-mail to the Highways Agency, and received no reply...

Anyway, I got a lift home from work the other day, and decided just for fun to count how many non-working street lights I passed on the journey from Westminster to Grays in Essex, a distance of just under 25 miles.

I don't really know what number I was expecting.. maybe a few dozen?.. but the actual number that were out was an utterly appalling figure of 242!.. that is not a typo - it really does say two hundred and forty two!

Surely this number is unacceptable??

Once again I really do wonder if local authorities and the Government have thier priorities totally mixed up..

Just felt like having a little rant about it :-)

Regards,

Russ

No, they have their priorities right, better to save money on necessary repairs, then there is more money to go into their pension pot
