  • Unfortunately our temporary contractor does not have any timescales, however once our new contractor is fully up and running there will then be timescales required to be met.

  • When you have time scales for the temporary or new contractor please let me know, it is very dark when driving down Ludlow Drive, it is hard to see the road signage. Please fix asap. Thank you.

  • Ref: 351532 Thank you for reporting this outage for an Electrical asset maintained by Oxfordshire County Council. Reports of this kind are vital to assist us in keeping the County in light.

    We have logged your report on our asset management system and we hope to get this repaired as soon as possible. Oxfordshire County Council have recently appointed new term maintenance contractors to manage our electrical highway assets within Oxfordshire, however they are currently dealing with a small backlog of outstanding faults from the transition from the old contractor to the new. Our aim is to get as many faults as possible rectified, however this will be based on an area approach. Apologies for any inconvenience caused while this asset is out of operation.

    Kind regards The Electrical – Lighting Team
