Oxford Road Stone entering village from Thame.

Reported via mobile in the Road sign with a light (light not working) category anonymously at 23:08, Thursday 4 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 1 minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5809506.

30/50 mph speed signs either side of the road not illuminated, S218/S219. Probably ten reports now over 2/3 years and still not fixed with yet another road collision in the village today. Reports get closed to updates and not fixed. The traffic island continues to be struck with demolished keep left sign in the middle. Maybe all reference numbers to hand should be passed to the chief executive for an explanation. Why have ‘smiley face’ signs x5 in the village and not keep the signage in good order ? 3 years to address is not a lot to ask ?

  • 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.

  • Update.

    We have attended the site and have carried out a full assessment on the lighting column. 95% of lighting reports are repaired on the first visit, as they are generally more minor issues such as replacing the bulb. Unfortunately, there are occasions when further work is required:

    Full column replacement, Lantern / bracket replacements and/or Specialist parts
    It is not economically viable for us to order and replace these items in isolation, we package works together and schedule them in by area. This means that in some cases the work will not be completed for up to 90 working days and we apologise for this, but it is essential to keep costs low and utilise the workforce in the most cost effective way.

    Vegetation clearance
    We will always try to remove vegetation which is blocking a street light or traffic signal on the first visit, but there are occasions when it is not safe for our operators to do so and specialist equipment such as a cherry picker and/or traffic management is required. This must all be scheduled in to ensure we are not disrupting other roads in the area; we aim to carry out this work within 90 working days.

    Further electrical investigation required
    If the initial inspection highlights there 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, we are bound in these cases by the electricity supplier service levels, which tend to be again 90 working days.

    Please be assured we do have the job in hand, it just might take a little longer than normal, but we will update you when the work has been completed.
