Street light cut down.

Hi. In the park behind the Shakespeare pub next to Medina Gardens there is a lamp post which has been cut down. It has been like it for a few months now and I just thought it was taking a while from a back log of work. Apart from the lack of lighting in a very dark corner of a park it has been left at a height potentially dangerous to members of the public as it has sharp edges.

  • Ref: 352200 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

    This is still the current state of the lamppost in question. It really needs replacing. It is a very dark area of the park and an older lady had to use a torch last night and she told me she didn’t feel safe.
