Unlit island - Oxford Road Gerrards Cross

Reported via mobile in the Road sign without a light category anonymously at 21:18, Sunday 24 March 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5760684.

I reported this when a van delivering newspapers skidded in the snow and crashed into this island, taking out two reflective signs and two grey sign posts with lights, laminating the blue arrows. That was about 5 years ago. Since then I’ve reported the fact it took so long to repair the damaged signs etc (a few years and gaping holes in the floor exposing electrical wire). Lovely for families crossing. It’s also been years of reporting that the one post that was replaced has never lit up. The other one was filled in and so when you travel from Denham, this island isn’t lit up or properly alerted. This island isn’t lit up. At all. How mad is that?!
