Street light not turning on.

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 17:30, Mon 3 December 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

The lightbulb has gone, it's flashing a very dim red colour, like it's trying to turn on. It's half-way down the street on the corner. Been like it for two days.

  • Fault Ref: 00348689 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.

  • Please note that this fault leaves the location in almost total darkness as this is a rural location. Children do tend still to play on the corner concerned - even after dark - and so it would be very much appreciated if a repair could be prioritised.
