Street lights turned back on in nine Swansea roads
NINE Swansea roads have had their street lights turned back on, it has been revealed.
It is part of the Labour-led council's plans to reverse a cost-saving project put in place by the previous administration.
June Burtonshaw, cabinet member for place in Swansea Council said: "There were 2,097 street lights turned off in non- residential areas — 129 of these (where there were a few residential properties) have been turned back on to date and the remainder with the exception of bypasses, will be turned on as part of the upgrade programme over the two years." The nine roads are; Pontarddulais Road (Fforestfach); Swansea Road (Llewitha); Peniel Green Road (Birchgrove); Pleasant Road (Gorseinon); Cwm level Road (Landore); Foxhole Road (Port Tennant); Mayals Road (Mayals); Heol y Gors (Townhill); and Clasemont Road (Morriston).
The streets were revealed following a question by opposition councillors Wendy Fitzgerald, Gareth Sullivan, Ioan Richard and Keith Marsh. Mrs Burtonshaw said the switch-on was party of Labour's election manifesto.

Thousands of street lights are being replaced in Swansea as part of a £10 million infrastructure investment, among other projects which also include lighting improvements.
In total there are more than 27,000 street lights in communities across the city and county and most of them are old and will be replaced.
The multi-million pound improvement schemes will use energy-efficient lighting to replace all old street lighting.
Swansea Council's plans also include footpath and road upgrades, the Hafod traffic management project and improvements to pelican crossings.
