A number of areas across the county are set to be illuminated under a infrastructural spend being undertaken by Cavan County Council.
The allocation was discussed at the start of the Ballyjamesduff Municipal District meeting regarding the €25,000 spend on public lighting.
The figure is being made available for public lighting in each MD and is being taken from development contributions reserves.
Cavan County Council acknowledge that public lighting is a valued and visible asset with the potential to make a significant contribution to the wider community in terms of accessibility, road safety and the fostering of commercial activities.
During the meeting, Cllr Shane P O'Reilly (FF) made representations for two specific street lights for Mullagh. Ballyjamesduff-Virginia area engineer Brendan Smith said at the meeting that he could not comment on the specifics but said “I will see what I can do”.
Cllr O'Reilly said that there has been an increase in local authority housing in the area necessitating the provision of public lighting, to which the engineer replied that he would “take the suggestion on board”.
Representations were also made for the area near the box factory in Ballyjamesduff. Cllr Paddy Smith said that lighting on the Granard Road, particularly at the GAA grounds, should be considered as it is “a particular black spot”.
The area engineer said that all submissions would be taken into consideration before a final decision is made on the allocation.
