Stockport’s streetlight revolution starting now

by Iain Roberts on 9 March, 2012

Streetlights across many of our main roads in Stockport are set to become brighter, cheaper to run and cleverer thanks to a Lib Dem initiative being proposed by Cllr Iain Roberts. The nearly-£2 million investment will see new light put on 8% of the streetlights.  The lamps burn brighter and whiter, so are better for […]

Stockport Council will be repairing all faulty streetlights in Orchard and Rosewood Gardens shortly. The problem has arisen because the roads are not adopted by the Council – they are still in the ownership of the developer who therefore has responsibility for fixing these sorts of problems.

The document below shows the money Stockport Council is spending on its capital transport programme in 2011/12. That’s things like big pavement and road resurfacing. Stockport, like every council, doesn’t have nearly enough money to repair everything we’d like. Council officers look across the Borough each year and allocate money to what they see as […]

Broadway fix-up

by Iain Roberts on 26 November, 2010

I don’t know what it is about Broadway – the streetlights seem to break more often than elsewhere.  Just chance, probably. Coming back from Cheadle Village Partnership yesterday I spotted lights 19, 24 and 26 on Broadway aren’t working. I also reported a pothole at the junction of Barcheston Road and Broadway, and one of […]

New post – small but worthwhile achievements

by Iain Roberts on 21 October, 2010
