We can confirm that these lights are out due an issue with a broken overhead power line. To overcome this issue and restore supply we shall be arranging for a new supply pillar to be installed. As this work is more involved than a straight forward repair, there will be some delay until the lights will work again. We apologise for this but trust when the works are complete there will be a more reliable source of supply to the lights.
We shall instruct our contractors shortly and have closed this report but can further comments if needs be. To find out more about our street lighting please visit https://www.bathnes.gov.uk/ services/ streets-and-highway-maintenance/ lighting/ street-

We are sorry to advise there is a serious cable fault which is affecting this lighting. The electrical supply to this lighting was by an overhead cable which was damaged and removed for public safety.
The works to re-connect the supply require the excavation of trenching and the installation of underground cable. This work has been ordered from our contractors Volker Highways and they will attend as soon as they are able.
Although the lights will be out for a while longer, we hope you can appreciate this is not a straight forward repair, and our intention is to install a more reliable source of supply for the future with easier maintenance.
In the meantime we are arranging for some temporary solar lights to be placed on site to provide some illumination for the area.
