Section of lamp posts not working

The whole section of lamp posts at the junction between Fleetwood Road (A585) and Thistleton Road (B5269) is not working. This leaves the junction dark and unlit at night and drivers would also normally use the positioning of the street lamps on both sides of the road around the staggered junction to see from a distance that they are approaching a junction.

  • A lamp scout on the A585 was completed this last Wednesday night (9 January). We found a number of lights not working between Windy Harbour and Thistleton junction - 10 in total out of 56 lamps. There is a known cable fault to the south of Thistleton junction, which is being investigated by a sub-contractor from the 28th of this month, which will hopefully resolve this problem.
