Braintree district: Street light switch off to be completed this week
1:04pm Thursday 12th September 2013 in News
A planned overnight switch-off of street lights has yet to be fully implemented, but a council has pledged to introduce it fully by the end of this week.
Essex County Council (ECC) had announced street lights in Braintree district would be turned off from midnight to 5am from September 1 onwards.
But many residents in streets that are meant to be included in the scheme have reported their lights are remaining on.
An ECC spokesman indicated the roll-out of the scheme was 90 per cent complete by the end of the weekend, and would be completed this week.
