Light out making pedestrian/cycle crossing very dark

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 21:18, Thu 11 October 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

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.

  • On a second look in daylight, it's actually number 15.
