  • These lights are important as they are the only lights on one side of the street all the way down Drummond Street. They are already quite dim, so any being out for any length of time could cause an accident. The other side of the road is very dark and busy, even in the evenings.

  • Still a problem for local residents - at a recent housing meeting a request was made to the housing management team to get this light fixed and to get lights installed all the way down Drummond Street to the Pleasance as soon as possible, especially given the unsavoury characters hanging around this street dealing drugs and committing break-ins.
