Has anybody else noticed how when the council or private companies renovate buildings or squares they install uplighting and accent lighting etc which all looks very nice at first,but then the bulbs blow and never get replaced which i think is a shame as they look good and proberly cost at lot to install which is then wasted.
Town Hall- all new lighting installed in 1997 half the lights on the building dont work including the ones in the pavements.
Cathedral Square- installed 1993, uplighters in the trees have been covered up with gravel and only about 3 lights on the steps work,and the building itself is only partially lit.
Pavement going up along side millenium galleries where the steps are, the wall was illuminated but all the bulbs now dont work.
Parkway Bridge was illuminated for about a month after completion,not anymore.
Sign on brookhill roundabout advertising university of Sheffield use to be lit up,hasnt been for ages.
Vulcan on top of the town hall was lit by a beam from on top of the Gap building
Lyceum was lit up really nicely when first completed in 1991 with both spot lights on the building and also from lights on top of the Crucible.
Can not think of anymore at present
What with the new lights installed in the trees on Eyre Street and the road at the back of Debenhams,and the new millenium Square,Station Square and the new water feature next to Hallam university due to be completed in the next year its about time the Council got their act together and replaced a few bulbs!
