  • All the trees in Alyward Road have now been cropped back and i have informed Skanska of this Skanska will carry out another light level test the week commencing 23rd October 2017 and will inform me of the test results, I would like to add that the light level is still too low between the lamps and an additional lamp will need to be installed.
