Street light missing

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

The street light in Kings Cross Road (North End) was knocked over by a vehicle in September 2016 and has been missing ever since. This leaves the road dangerous at nights as the light in this road is very limited as it is.

Thank you for contacting Oxfordshire County Council Street lighting, unfortunately we are currently only available to respond to emergency situations which may have an impact on the health and safety of members of the public, these will be dealt with within a 24 hour period.
Reported faults will continue to be registered on our management system and these will be tackled in coming months.

  • The continuing absence of a street light in King's Cross Road (North End) DOES form a clear and immediate danger to the public, as this part of the street is pitch-dark at night.

  • Unfortunately it does not class as emergency works, the original cut down to make safe would have been so. We are aware of this unit and are currently awaiting for when we will be able to replace the units that have been cut down/removed for safety reasons. Sorry I cannot give you any further at this time.
