Street light at junction broken after accident. It has been left unrepaired/unreplaced for over 9 months. Could it please be dealt with. I don't think it necessarily needs repairing/replacing.

  • No lamp number available as only a stump of one metre remains, together with a big hole. the lamp is on the A420 itself adjacent to lamp 1 on Pinewoods Road. A traffic bollard and 'caution ' tape were left from the accident so I assume the highways authority must have a record of this.
