High season for maintenance of street lighting
– I Oslo we are responsible for the maintenance of 80.000-90.000 public lights. Earlier years we have experienced that we get a lot of requests from the public in the autumn months, and we see the same pattern this year, Communications Manager Espen Mathisen says.
1.000 destroyed street lights
Only in October Infratek will repair over 1.000 street lights in Oslo.
- This is an important job, especially since there has been reports of people not feeling safe in dark areas of the city, Mathisen says.
For Oslo the increase is about 11 per cent from October last year.
Infratek are responsible for the maintenance of street lights in several municipalities in Eastern Norway. Infratek see the same trend with an increase in reports of malfunctioning street lights.
- Giving the people the safety they need in the dark time of the year, is a task we take very seriously, Mathisen says.
