Street lights - faulty sensors? And not coded

Reported in the Street Lighting and Road Signs category anonymously at 20:38, Mon 23 September 2019

Sent to Bromley Council 2 minutes later

High street. ALL new flood lights from elmfield road junction up to Halifax. It was rather dark at 7pm this evening. All lights in town were on except this whole row of street lights. Not sure if they’re switched together or not but should have been on. Also none of the new columns are coded

  • Apologies for the delay in responding to this enquiry. We have investigated this issue and believe the columns are working appropriately. They are set to come on at dusk and not before, this is because the new lamps do not require 'warm up' time as was needed for previous light sources. This enquiry will therefore be closed.

  • These actually come on after dusk way after the other section of lights. These also go off earlier than the others.
