From the a5 roundabout (b5120) to the roundabout at thorn road

Reported via mobile in the Street Lights category anonymously at 17:44, Mon 20 December 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 365004.

Street lights not working !! This problem has been reported multiple times still nothing has been done. Who ever is responsible for the street lights from the A5 roundabout down Bedford road (b5120) to the roundabout where it meets Thorn road and all down Thorn road (pictures show map with red marks showing roads) This is a busy pedestrian traffic area due to the new houses and only route in to town. I strongly suggest this matter is addressed ASAP. People trying to cross the road by the roundabout are invisible to traffic till the last minute, if this matter is left I believe there will be a serious accident if not a fatality! I ask central Bedfordshire to resolve this problem or contact the relevant parties, until this matter is sorted ie street lights working this matter is to stay open!

  • Hello Street lighting team.
    See ref number : and please escalate the inspections and repair of several lamps
    Resident says that several lamps along the entire road are not working. Resident says that they have reported this both in November and December.
    That they keep getting the same message via fix my street and also via what customer services tell them .Which is : we have now inspected the defect and no planned repairs are necessary at this stage .
    The caller says that all the lamps along Thorn road , Houghton Regis under this CRN and also the lamps along Bedford road ( B5120 ) that comes off the A5 into Houghton Regis are all not working.

    The resident says he has seen parents and their kids trying to cross along the road and there is a blind bend , which due to the lack of lamps working is very dark. That there will be an accident.
    Requesting we do carry out the inspection either by night to see what he is reporting or carry out diagnostics during the day to confirm that all the lamps are not working -----Escalation email sent to the street lighting team and AC
