  • Hi there,

    The situation is getting ridiculous now. I have reported the problem several times since the initial accident around 3 months ago and yet nothing has been done yet.

    The lamppost is currently veering into the road and poses a threat to any vehicles driving up the hill. Please can you ensure that this is fixed immediately as it is a hazard for drivers.

  • Afternoon Bucks CC, any update on the replacement of this post? It is LC018, and has been knocked down for a while now.

  • Appears that the tape has come off and the power has now failed to LC017, LC020, LC021 and LC024. Please can arrange for this to be fixed once and for all. Or until some bad driver knocks into it again that is.
