A mad man is being blamed for the fact that a number of street lights across the Corporate Area are not functioning.

Stephen Shaw, manager of communication and customer services at the National Works Agency (NWA), said that the entity recently replaced several torn cables or vandalised signal cabinets. However, he said that it appears the work is being deliberately undone.

Shaw said that the agency suspects that a person of unsound mind might be responsible for the vandalism.

Some of the locations that are currently impacted include Red Hills and Eastwood Park Roads, Oxford Road and the PIOJ Building pedestrian crossing and Half-Way Tree and Slipe roads.

The NWA said that based on the frequency with which stop lights are being damaged, he is concerned that they could run out of spare parts for repairs.
