Street lights broken at top of road (near bus stop) it’s been over a month broken

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 11:53, Fri 28 December 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

Multiple Street lights off (has been over 1 month) 6 in total reported- you will find number markings have on many been removed therefore no point asking residents to tell you the light number. Have tried to accurately pinpoint on your map. It’s making unsafe to walk on pavement after dark (3.59pm) can’t see trip hazards very well and quite scary at night.

  • That’s alright on further inspection of your reporting site it’s apparent that other residents have reported the same lighting issues TWO MONTHS AGO... to no apparent avail. I’ll just have to get a really big torch to walk down the road. You have no idea how pitch black this street is at night. It’s hazardous.

  • There is no sign post or street lamp number. This lamp has been broken for two months. It’s technically on oxford road on the central verge at entry to Mortimer drive. Signpost on this lamp. Top of light covered in tree branches and it’s right next to bus stop (as if going towards JR HOSPITAL)
