Street lighting off
Reported via mobile in the Light Not Working category anonymously at 23:37, Sun 4 December 2022
Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later
The majority of street lighting in Derwent Road, Wadhurst Close, Tovil Close and all the surrounding roads are in darkness , the whole area is unsafe to walk between 4pm & 5 pm. At 5 pm some of the lights come on but a lot stay off unlit. The lights in Derwent Rd when they do eventually come on are covered by trees, thus making the lights very ineffective. The timings need to be changed & the over hang of branches & leaves especially in Derwent Road need to be trimmed so the street lights can be fit for the purpose intended, to keep us all safe. Thank you

Unfortunately the issue raised above which I thought would be flagged as urgent due to it being a matter of health & safety has not be fixed. I have now also discovered due to having to leave my home early one morning that the fault mentioned above is not only leaving areas in darkness in the early evenings but the same thing is happening in the early mornings too. The street lighting is going off far too early, so while it is still pitch black outside 6 AM to 7AM the street lights go OFF leaving us in complete darkness. In the evenings the lighting is coming ON far too late, again leaving us in darkness. I feel that this is totally unacceptable as an older person venturing out early morning or having to come home in complete darkness? It’s so so dangerous. The two main lamp posts that I have noted as faulty (timed incorrectly ) are as follows: Derwent Road SE20 Lamp post No D187 Wadhurst Close SE20 Lamp post No F855 I would be grateful if somebody could look into this as a matter of urgency. Thank you.

Thank you for this, it is a known fault, a component on the CMS system has failed and needs to be replaced, a new one is currently on order.
