The street lights outside 59 and 31 Norreys Avenue not working.

I reported two months ago that the street light outside 59 Norreys Avenue had not been working for some months. You responded to say it was 'fixed' on 18th September. The light then worked for 1 night only. Perhaps the problem is not merely a faulty bulb? The street light outside 31 Norreys Avenue is not working either. That makes TWO faulty street lights. At night it is impossible to see anything for some distance up and down the road. This is very dangerous for pedestrians, especially the elderly or children, as well as difficult for people trying to find their cars. I have already hurt my ankle because of not being able to see the kerb in the dark. Perhaps you would like to visit the area to see exactly how dangerous and inconvenient this is? PLEASE PLEASE CAN YOU FIX THE PROBLEM WITH BOTH LIGHTS AS A MATTER OF URGENCY. Thank you.

The street lights outside 31 and 59 Norreys Avenue were reported as 'fixed' by you last week. They worked for one night only on the day they were fixed. This is what happens each time they are 'fixed', and I have reported this fact before. Perhaps the problem is of a different nature - maybe it is something to do with the settings or the software? PLEASE, whatever the cause, could you take this problem seriously and FIX them once and for all before someone suffers a very nasty accident because of being unable to see in the dark. Thank you.

The streetlight outside 59 Norreys Avenue is still not working. It really needs fixing as several times I have tripped on the street cause it is too dark to see the uneven pavement/ obstructions in the road
