The street light is not working and because the one on the corner has been removed and not replaced it is very dark on a blind bend ans approaching it. The road is covered in dirt from the building site and it is very dangerous.

  • Thank you for your report, to enable us to log the fault to the correct unit can you please advise using the attached map the street light number you are referring to. If the unit is not on the map this would not be owned/maintained by Oxfordshire County Council and would need to be reported to the developer/landowner direct. Unfortunately we do not keep records of private lights.

  • The street light not working is 002 and street light 001 has disappeared altogether. With both lights out, a very dirty road on a 90 degree blind bend it is very dangerous when cars approach from Rousham. They are breaking last minute and slipping on the dirt.

  • Ref: 350641/350642 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
