Top of light blown off in storm

Reported via desktop in the Street Lighting and Road Signs category anonymously at 14:55, Friday 18 February 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The top blew off today and I have it to return to you if needed. I think it hit my car but can’t see properly at present. The light is obviously damaged and won’t work!

  • Can this repair be speeded up as missing light has created a dark environment in St. Benjamis Drive. Last night (21st Feb about 6pm) an unknown male parked his car, got out and proceeded to view the front of every house before driving off. It seemed very suspicious not helped by the lack of illumination from the damaged light.

  • This is taking way too long. Since first reported in February a car has been broken into and items were stolen clearly aided by the broken street light.

  • This still hasn’t been fixed. Meanwhile I have noticed that the nearest light no 1798 3 isn’t working. We came home at 22.45 in pitch dark and it wasn’t working. With the two adjacent lights out the area is very dark and bearing in mind other reported issues, we need this dealt with rapidly now please.

  • Thank you for replacing the street light, however as you can see from the photos provided, the light needs to be turned 90 degrees within the lamp as there is a distinct darkness covering half the road. As a result, one half of the road is bathed in light as is half the private garden behind the lamp. Thank you.

  • Someone from the Bromley Street Lighting department needs to view the new light whilst it is on at night to get a clear in situ understanding as to what is being illuminated and what is not. Turning the light casing 90 degrees would only move the problem creating a darker road area where it is needed most. Being a LED strip light it appears to not provide 360 degree coverage unlike the other lamps in St. Benjamins Drive, it's also a very bright white light as opposed to the softer amber light emitted by existing lamps.
