A new light has been put in at the junction with Corbett Road and Alvescot Road.

It seems rather than pointing down onto street it is angled / configured to point at my house, this floods front bedrooms with light at night so we cannot sleep - it is like an Alien Abduction movie scene.

The original lights give a lower intensity yellow light which illuminates the street below, the new on if far brighter and not directed correctly.
