LED street lights

Local Conversations in Elm Park

Graham P
We had new LED street lights fitted this week although very nice but as any one got any idea why they are 24 hours day? Seems a waste if they are trying to save money.
thats deff a glitch and they should automatically turn on at dask and turn of at dawn, if still on between those times contact streetcare and report it to get it sorted out.
