Cable fault to 2 illuminated signposts.

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 15:01, Monday 16 September 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

Previously reported cable damage to 2 signs on the junction of A4155 Reading Road and unnamed Harpsden turn. Sign Numbers S27 & S28. One or both is possibly fed from lamp column number 63? The cables are exposed in excavations and have been barriered off. The cables are very shallow. The faults were reported to Oxfordshire County Council but I was informed they could not locate the affected signs on their system. The signs are Give Way & 50mph (S27) and 50mph / National Speed Limit (S28).
