LC051 on A418 does not lit, adjacent to a ped cros

Reported in the Street light not working category by David Garcia-Cuerva at 08:36, Sunday 19 January 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

LC051, on A418 adjacent to a pedestrian signalised crossing (and a traffic island) does not work, moreover there is an island inmediately after the signalised crossing with a non-lit bollard. I would say this LC051 is critical from a safety point of view (you can barely see the bollard at night with no lit.

  • The attached photo was taken yesterday 19 March 2020, this is two months since I had it first reported. There are many other lamp columns not as critial as this, since this LC051 is providing luminaire to a signalised pedestrian crossing and traffic island with a non-lit bollard mounted. This island and the bollard might pose a potential hazard to those motorists at night who not familiar with the road.
