Previously Reported to you in Nov - you said "We picked these outages up during our November checks and are currently looking to programme in the repairs as soon as possible." Now, ticket marked as closed? Lights still not working - This is a dangerous situation as the roundabout is not lit form the eastern direction - why is nothing being done about it??? Thank you

  • Thank you for contacting Highways England. I can confirm that we are aware of the issues at Cucumber Lane Junction. These issues are due to the SOX lighting equipment which is no longer being manufactured. Unfortunately, this has had an impact on maintenance but we are trying to maintain as many units as possible. We do have schemes in the forward programme for replacement lighting along the A47, as well as the A14 and A1, and we have just confirmed the specification for a new LED lantern to be used on the majority of SOX areas which will mimic the SOX lanterns. We are just checking that the current columns are suitable or whether further intervention is required before we look to upgrade.

    These LED lanterns have been ordered and we are starting to receive the stock. We will start to target problem areas to repair outages.

    Kind Regards Highways England
