Rufford Street Lamppost

Rufford_street_lampost_070706 Residents bringing pressure to bear on councillors a couple of years ago ensured that Rufford Street was one of the first to get new lampposts.  (originally we were told that the street was not a high priority).  When i moved to Rufford St in 2002 only 1/3 of the street lights were working.  We did get some nice shiny new lampposts.  However activities by lorries at the opening of Rufford Street into Randell’s Road keep knocking down both lampposts and street signs there.  It is not clear whether it is CEMEX/Readymix lorries  that occasionally have to back up there, fly tipping trucks in a hurry or ‘lost’ HGVs that occasinally make a very tight turn.

Paul Convery our new councillor is taking the issue up.  Paste from Paul’s email to contact Islington>

>>Here’s a severed lampost on Rufford Street close to its junction with
Randall’s Road N1. There is no reference number on the "good" lampost I am
afraid. Attached map shows location however.
