Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Street lighting pole SW2 between Ferry Hinksey Rd, and Swan St, OX2, is obsured by heavily overgrown trees stopping the lighting from casting on the footpath below. The pole also appears to be bent from overbearing trees. Other lights along thos path are also bscured to a lesser degree needing attention. Much of the foliage along this footpath is overgrown and presents a danger after dusk.

  • Still not fixed. Is there any update on this? It is dark early in the evenings now with no alternative lighting in this dark corner.
