Street light not working

Reported in the Street lighting category by Kate Farquhar-Thomson at 15:21, Wed 12 December 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

Street lamp numbered '3' has not been working for a long long time - it illuminates the end of a pavement where one has to cross the road so is rather necessary. Although in a 30 limit the cars speed here.

  • Ref: 349007 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.
