People Will Die. A ticking time bomb ⏰ has been set on Wirral Council’s streets.

The question here for Wirral’s councillors and senior officers was a multi-faceted, economic one. Do we invest £millions undertaking safe street lighting designs which would entail the massive extra cost of removing thousands of old, redundant lampposts and lanterns, and installing new ones, but would provide safe streets for cars and pedestrians? Or do we ignore the British Standard, cut corners, avoid having to switch off street lights at night, save £millions and accept that men, women and children are going to be killed and injured?

Another pertinent question would be: did Wirral Council still have the staff or the control of the staff qualified to carry out the design work, after allowing the last chief lighting designer / Group Leader to retire and outsourcing the lighting design section to a private company?

Wirral Council switches off hundreds of Street Lights, but WITHOUT considering ALL the information
