LETTER: ‘How long before the street light works are fully complete?’
I am very concerned about the amount and duration of the open excavations for the street lighting modifications.
I am aware of the constraints of NRSWA (New Roads Street Works Act) legislation and frankly I do not understand how any of these works comply.
This morning I was driving along Wellington Street, Littleport when I had to stop to let an elderly woman with a shopping trolley negotiate an excavation, by stepping onto the road.
No provision had been made for pedestrians and no signage was present to warn the public.
This is dangerous and should not be allowed.

Do street lighting contractors work to a different set of rules?
How long before these works are fully complete?
- 1 Police officer sacked for racially abusing colleague at Christmas party
- 2 Large illegal knife and 45 cannabis plants found in police raid
- 3 Fears for historic vicarage council fought to save
- 4 Cambridgeshire police officer dismissed after conduct hearing
- 5 College and sixth form's 'gold' rating for 'outstanding' mental health provision
- 6 Photo memories of the late Prince Philip projected onto house
- 7 Three arrests after suspected brothel discovered
- 8 City’s first Asian grocery store coming to market place
- 9 Jail for man caught carrying meat cleaver in public after missing tools argument
- 10 Boxer's 163-miles-in-a-month charity run raises £1,600
I am very concerned this poorly managed operation is going to cause an incident/accident.
