Henrietta Mews / Sunderland Street Pitch blackness due to failed street light is very dangerous

Reported via desktop in the Street light fault category anonymously at 15:23, Sat 26 November 2022

The street light at the end of Sunderland St failed several weeks ago and this creates a real danger because it is intended to light the sloping and uneven (cobbled) walkways down from Sunderland St to Henrietta Mews and Henrietta Park, which is a very well trodden path. This has been reported separately I believe and it may affect more lights than just this one, but this one is key. You must fix it quickly before an accident occurs.

  • We reported failed street-lights in Henrietta Mews several weeks ago, but no action has been taken. This should be looked at and amended without delay. The blackout is a safety and security concern to us as residents, and for visitors, especially now that the dark and bad winter weather is approaching. We fear.someone tripping and injuring themselves. The situation needs rectifying immediately. We recall Western Power Distribution carried out some electrical work between 31 Oct and 8 November, and this might have affected the supply of street-lights in Henrietta Mews?

  • We understand that the group of lights which were out are now working after the cable fault was repaired. Our contractors will be attending to light 1 on the steps to carry out any remedial work needed there to that particular light. This report is now closed but we can add further comments if needs be.
