Street lighting not working. light no.60 and no.61

Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 10:06, Wed 23 October 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

The street lights on both sides of the Botley road don't seem to be working at night time. Light no.60 (outside house number 213 Botley road) and directly opposite light no.61.

We have phoned previously and reported the problem but I can not see the problem in the list of reported ones on the website.

The lights have not been working for some time now, maybe over two months now. Sorry, I can't give you an exact time for how long it has been.

I have seen on two different occasions workers working/ looking at the lights using a "cherry picker" and even after on both times I have returned home from my work at 10:30 pm to 11 pm at night to find the lights still not working.

  • Street light no 60 is still not working and this is close to the busy junction with the entrance to Aldi, Wickes etc. As a cyclist (who is well lit) I find this a dangerous junction and the sooner this street light is repaired, the better please. It is dangerous to leave is out of order.
