Light is on one minute and off the next. One night it was flashing on and off outside our bedroom window. I thought it was going to explode.

  • Ref: 351881 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

  • A neighbour of mine saw a lighting team go to the street light at the bottom of Meadow close. This is 50 yards away from the one that needs fixing i.e. Number 6. Please don't think you've fixed it cos you haven't.

  • I'm really sorry but I've just realised that it is not number 6 but number 5 and it is not working at all now. I'll raise a new report.

  • I've just learned from my neighbour that light number 6 has been "fixed" again yesterday, 6 May, it is number 5 that needs fixing not number 6. My report for number 5 not working has now disappeared. Somebody thinks it's fixed. It's not. Please fix number 5. It's outside 22 Meadow close which faces the green.

  • Sorry about this, the fault was raised for 5 so i have no idea why our contractors are going to the wrong one. I have attached an asset map with our columns on , could you confirm the correct one just to be sure we are sending the crew to the correct one, sorry about this and appreciate any help

  • I can confirm that it is number 5 outside 22 Meadow Close that needs fixing and not number 6 which is at the bottom of the Close.
