The Public Works Department (PWD) is seeking the assistance of the public to identify street lights that are non operational or malfunctioning. These include lights that go on and off, dimmed lights, those that burn continuously or lights that remain off.
PWD stands ready to repair any street light that is not working effectively as they benefit all sectors by providing well lit streets and communities. A well-lit street will discourage criminal activity and contribute to the general safety of the public.
PWD is not soliciting requests for new street lights due to budgetary constraints; however the department is encouraging the public to report areas that are in need of lighting to facilitate planning.
• To report street lights on Grand Turk, South Caicos and Salt Cay, contact Anryn Malcolm or Don Lightbourne on 338 2502 or 946 2801 ext. 10913
• For lights in Providenciales, North and Middle Caicos, call: Garvin Thomas or Roger Harvey on 946 4596.
Public Works Department is responsible for payment for street light installations and for ensuring that the lights are operational throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands. It is the responsibility of PWD to alert Fortis to faulty street lights and to request that repairs are undertaken. The responsibility for supplying power and for the carrying out of repairs rests solely with Fortis TCI and Fortis at the request of PWD.
