Thats so right maybe if the councillor had, had the nerve to stay on the site we might have got an answer as to why this work is being done but sadly he dosent seem to be able to take the flack or all the questions, and some say we were being to hard on him.
All I think we want is for them to do what their paid to do, work for the people.

Maybe they're outdated and dangerous or maybe there's a power saving. But let's not ponder on the positive let's look for the most negative comments we can think of "the council needs to spend money", or maybe if we keep Waundeg dark they won't get as many yobs at night. I can't imagine why the Councillor left this forum, must just be a big baby.
Cheers,
Canuck

May we please get back to the question?

Why are the lights being replaced? the ones there caant be that old.

I cannot see the need for new light or the expence of having new ones.

Replacing the the lights with new ones shouldn't "bother" anyone but decent people like Kenneth think that money could be better spent elsewhere.

I cant see how we can determine that the money would be better spent elsewhere as the reason behind it hasn't been discovered.

We cannot assume that the council has 'spent money for the sake of it'. Until I see proof saying other wise, I will reserve judgement.

Are they replacing the lights because they have widened the footpath and the old posts are now in the footpath. So we have a new question why have they widened the footpath?
