Street light on corner Harley and Botley Roads broken

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 12:19, Mon 21 January 2019

The street light on the corner of Harley Rd and Botley Rd is broken, and has been broken for a while. This was reported previously in November, but I don't think anything has been done to repair the street light.

  • Two street lights have now been broken for months. The lights are facing each other on the Botley road, and therefore leave a significant patch of the road completely unlit, around the already tricky traffic situation outside Waitrose, just opposite Magenta Storage. This is dangerous for all road users, but especially pedestrians and cyclists.

    This was first reported back in November. Why hasn't this been resolved? If anything, not responding to people's concerns and reports will make people stop reporting them here.

    Note that this is within a 3-minute (approx 300 metres) walk of the Church graveyard where someone recently died under suspicious circumstances. This came as a great shock to the West Oxford community. It's important that people feel safe around here!
