Street light outside 142 Queens Road not working after being hit by a transit van

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 18:38, Wed 12 December 2018

I reported this light not working properly at least a month ago although it's not showing on your map. Tonight it has been hit by a transit van and has stopped working completely, I can't see if there is any damage to the lamp post as it is dark and the light has stopped working.

  • Yet again light no 38 opposite 142 Queens Road Carterton has stopped working yet again. It appeared to be fixed on 16/17 March and has stopped working again on 5/04/2019, however they are repairing this it does not appear to be working. Could we have a more permanent repair or perhaps an investigation into why it keeps breaking down. the light has now been faulty since December 2018.
