Civic Interchange street lights

By Mrshmellowman - 1 March 2010 9

I have noticed over the last week or so, that all of the streetlights in the civic bus interchange are on during the day. There are any number of lights, including floodlights, throughout the interchange that are supposed ( I would have thought) to be off in the daytime as they offer no benefit to bus riders.

Is it just me or does this seem like;

1. a massive waste of taxpayers money

2. pretty bad in environmental terms

The TAMS website says “Current streetlight maintenance objectives are focused on reducing energy consumption….”

Having the streetlights burning 24 / 7 does not look like reducing energy consumption to me!

What’s Your opinion?

I see the same thing in Waramanga and along northborn and part of the parkway every morning, tell me if you get to the bottom of it.

“a massive waste of taxpayers money”

I switch off every time I hear this phrase.

Why expend 30 secs energy with Canberra Connect when you can spend 5 mins waxing lyrically here?

Important things in life…….repeat that phrase to youself

Yep, for god’s sake call Canberra Connect before you whinge here – it might just be that a bird has shat on the photoelectric eye that controls when the lights come on for that circuit. Contrary to popular belief, there isn’t some little grey man who goes around switching them on manually.

From memory, picking up the newfangled telephone invention and calling CanberraConnect/ActewAGL to report it used less energy than turning the computer on to post it on the riotact.

Have you bothered to call Canberra Connect?

Might be for testing?
