After raising the issue of the malfunctioning streetlights with local Board Chair Chris Darby, the Council have provided the following update;

1.       Vector advise this is a problem affecting the whole Devonport Area back to Belmont.

2.       Auckland Transport (AT) Road Corridor Maintenance Engineers are aware of the problem and currently waiting for Vector to come back to them with a repair program and timeframes.

3.       Unfortunately there is no quick fix to the situation as Vector work through the issues.

It appears that street-lighting has been restored for now but the underlying infrastructure problems continue to exist.  Vector are expected to update AT with a workplan.

    But we do live in a third world country!.

    Perhaps in solving the problem, the opportunity will be taken to put the power cables underground instead of strung along the streets like some third-world country?
