Bollard lamps knocked over. Between Highbridge Walk and WatersideWaitrose Carpark

Reported via Android in the Street light not working category by Sherrilyn Bateman Cllr. at 11:38, Wednesday 13 March 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5706359.

I reported this last week and the job has been dropped as Buckinghamshire Council are unable to find the location.

It's the bollard lights at the back of Highbridge Walk and towards Waterside/Waitrose Carpark.

Here are the photos from today. All are knocked over and cables exposed.

BC grass cutters have moved the live bollards and electrical cables onto the path so the grass can be cut.

I spoke to the grass cutter today about it.

They are now an additional hazard to those using the path, as they are a trip hazard and strong possibility of being electrocuted.

These are vandalised on a regular basis.

Please fix.

Residents are truly concerns about the safety of this issue.

Updates

  • The Street Lighting Team aim to repair all faulty lighting within 20 working days, however, there may be some circumstances that this time for repairs is be extended. For example, if it is an electricity supply fault, this will be passed to the local electricity network operator to attend and rectify as we cannot work on their network, in these cases we will update you to let you know it is an electricity supply fault.

    We are experiencing a system issue at the moment which is stopping us from providing updates on lighting issues, please be assured all street lighting defects are being inspected and fixed but until we have resolved the updates issue you may see the light fixed without receiving any updates.

    We know that faulty lighting is very important to our residents, and we take all reported issues very seriously. In the latter part of 2023, we recruited night scouts to review all of the 40,000 lighting assets we maintain in Buckinghamshire, the information from this review and all customer reported issues are now being addressed and will be resolved as soon as possible.
