Light out making pedestrian/cycle crossing very dark

The street light on Hagbourne Road at the end of Bridge Close, at the point where the foot/cycle path crosses Hagbourne Road is out. It is numbered 16. Combined with the fact that almost all of the lights on the path across the adjacent public open space (as reported by other people) are out, this makes the crossing point very dark at night, so potentially dangerous. This is part of National Cycle Network Route 544 so should probably be fixed.
Thank you for contacting Oxfordshire County Council Street lighting, unfortunately we are currently only available to respond to emergency situations which may have an impact on the health and safety of members of the public, these will be dealt with within a 24 hour period.
Reported faults will continue to be registered on our management system and these will be tackled in coming months.
On a second look in daylight, it's actually number 15.

Ref: 346872 Thank you for your report; we have logged this as a fault on our management system. Our current policy is for our contractor to attend electrical & structural emergencies as a priority; these will be attended within a 24hr period. All other faults are logged on our management system, for efficiency, these are grouped by area and the date they were reported, and the contractor attends against a programmed of works based on this approach.
