Newly installed street lights not working

Reported in the Street lighting category by Jules Gribben at 11:39, Wednesday 13 May 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The newly installed street lights put in about 2 weeks ago are not working outside No 28 and No 17 Turnpike Road. You took out the old ones that had been there for years because so I was told by one of our hole digging operatives that "they were old and dangerous and could break and hurt somebody"! The lighting in the new lights is not as strong and our street is not as well lit especially as 2 are not working.

  • The light outside No 28 Turnpike was fixed but unfortunately the next one up the road at No 17, as orginally reported, was not fixed. When will this be done? Are street is very dark with this new lighting and one of them not working does not help, thanks

  • When will the newly installed street light outside 17 Turnpike Road be working? You fixed outside No 28 but not No 17. I have no idea what " local DNO operator" is from the previous response but the light ain't working!
