  • 16th January. I think it is urgent that the light in this dark but important pedestrian footpath is repaired asap, following the very unpleasant events last week in a nearby road (Harcourt Hill). Anyone using this footpath is very vulnerable, but it is an important connecting path between streets.

  • Thank you for your update, our contractor attended but due to its location it requires specialist equipment to access. This has been added to the works that are due to be carried out shortly with the machine. Sorry for the delay in getting this repaired.

  • We have attended site and found this to require a new lantern which has been ordered and will be fitted as soon as possible.

  • Unfortunately I am unable to provide a date but have requested this is prioritised.

  • As of 19 Dec light is still not working. I first reported this on 14 Nov. Clearly it will not now be fixed until the New Year at the earliest. Is it acceptable to wait 2 months to replace a light bulb? Or is the delay a reflection of the importance given to public safety in these circumstances?

  • This was first reported last January - a whole year to fix lights in a very dark passage, leaving the many local pedestrians and schoolchildren who use it vulnerable all that time.
