Streetlights on Bucknell road intermittently switching off and on. Multiple lights on whole length of road. Particularly bad with cluster of lights from George street to the co-op shops. Also several lights towards the town centre (near brook side school). Impacts pedestrians in dark evenings, particularly dangerous for those with low vision.
