Street light opposite 17/15 Wendover Way has been removed

Reported via mobile in the Street light not working category anonymously at 11:23, Friday 15 March 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5717391.

On the 8th February a vehicle hit the street light opposite 17/15 Wendover Way which knocked it down and caused a power cut to 750 houses whilst they removed the vehicle and made the damaged lamp post safe, temporary traffic lights were then in place for several days - rather than repairing the lamp post they have dug it out of the ground and filled the hole - this has now resulted in this part of the road being extremely dark which is concerning from a safety aspect but also where we have constant parked vehicles - school run, parents evening, football coupled with the speed people drive down Wendover Way the parked cars are not now as visible, considering the accident happened when there were no parked cars this is now more of a safety issue and urgently needs looking at - why would the lamp post be removed rather than repaired?!

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.
