Fiat Lux - or maybe not - Duxford gets poor service. from Balfour Beatty .
Despite months and months of chasing up, Balfour Beatty are still .not able to investigate if there is. power in. an old streetlight post in Duxford. Locally, . people have complained to say it is dangerous to children because the post .may still have a live electric current through it.
The district council has chased up Balfour Beatty, who have the contract for re.pairs to street lighting, but I am told BB's quotation service has been closed for a while and is now starting up again, and so cannot even give anyone an indication of how much the work would cost or when it could be done. .
If a company that claims to be an international provider of sustainable infrastructure solutions cannot send a team out to check the .safety of a streetlight some six months after being chased up - and possibly even longer - then there is something really wrong. I will get to the bottom of this tomorrow.
