The very first street light column on Ravenscourt Road at the junction with Rushet Road, St Paul's Cray, Orpington:

This LED street light has not been working properly ever since it was installed two years ago.

When it tries to ignite at night it flickers and does not come on.

The street light does not work at all at night.

  • The issue with the street lighting Central Management System has largely been resolved, with most of our 13,500 LED street lights now working as normal. Unfortunately, with Harvard Engineering going in to administration, we don’t currently have a supplier to provide the components that may be required to repair faulty LED lanterns. We’ve been in discussion with the new CMS company, they are manufacturing the necessary components and as soon as stock becomes available, it will be installed as quickly as possible,before the end of April. Thank you for your patience.
