Windsor streetlights to be fixed – after six months

These streetlights between Percival Street and Rickabys Creek bridge will be fixed on July 6 according to Endeavour Energy. Picture: Geoff JonesStreetlights along Hawkesbury Valley Way either side of Percival Street will finally be repaired on July 6, an Endeavour spokesperson told the Gazette, after six months of being out.

A retired Integral Energy employee who lives inthe Hawkesbury has been trying for months to get the streetlights replaced, with no joy until now.

The resident, who did not wish to be named, said the lights that were out were from the secondlight west ofRickabys Creek Bridge to Percival Street at Windsor, and also from Percival Streetalmost to the child-minding centre atClarendon on Hawkesbury Valley Way. “Either side of the RAAF overhead landing lights,” he said.

“I notified Endeavour of the lights betweenRickabys Creek bridge andPercivalStreet beingout which werecaused by a fallen tree inmid January, on April 18.” He contacted them again on May 22 when they still hadn’t been fixed.

“Both times they thanked me and spilt the old bull about taking no longer than 12 working days. I checked on Tuesday (June 7)and they had still not carried out the necessary repairs.”

He contacted them again this week, saying “I find this service deplorable, when it only requires a travel tower and twomen for approximately fourhours”, he said.“With the flooding recently this is a low-lying area and without lights could be extremely dangerous.”

The Endeavour spokesman said those lights were much more difficult to fix than just replacing the light, as it wasn’t the lights that were the problem but the electricity supply, as when a tree fell in January it took out the mains which were then cut off for safety until crews could get to the repair job.

The spokesman said the job had been scheduled for June 6 but the RMS cancelled their road occupancy licence due to the continuing flood situation on that day.

The new licence issued was for July 6. When asked why it took that long for the crews to get to the job,he said it was due to having to prioritise the workloads, and businesses and residences took priority.

In other streetlight news, Council announced last week that 550 streetlights had been updated by Endeavour Energy crewsto LED lights. The oldmercury vapour lights that were replaced were in Bligh Park, Clarendon, Cornwallis, Freemans Reach, Oakville, Pitt Town, South Windsor, Wilberforce, Windsor, Windsor Downs and Vineyard, representing more than 15 per cent of thelights in our LGA.

The replacement project, part of a larger oneacross western Sydney, began in late 2014.
