'Broken lights in Rubery subway will be fixed soon', say county council after councillor's complaint

Harry Leach 7th Nov, 2020

BROKEN lights in one of Rubery’s main subways will be fixed ‘as soon as possible’, according to Worcestershire County Council.

Around 50 per cent of the lights in the subway linking Callowbrook Lane to the High Street do not work.

Rubery Councillor Peter McDonald said: “It has been like this for more than six months.

“The county council is once again failing to maintain the lights and therefore knowingly putting residents’ safety at risk.

“It is obviously prepared to do nothing until someone is seriously hurt, which demonstrates clearly, it is failing its duty of care.

“There seems to be a lack of regard when it comes to the safety of Rubery residents in general.”

A Worcestershire County Council spokesperson told the Standard the authority was aware of the ongoing lighting issues.

“We are liaising with our contractors to get the issue resolved as soon as possible.”
