Various street lights between A47 / MacDonalds Swaffham and Norwich day burning.
Thank you for contacting us via Fix My Street regarding the street lights on the A47.
I appreciate you taking the time to report this.
The lighting on the A47 is operated from a photocell which tells the lighting unit when it is dark to switch the light on, and when it is daylight to switch the light off. When the photocell fails the lights operate 24/7.
Whilst this is not ideal it does mean that the lights are operating during the night. We are carrying out lamp changes on the columns in this location over the next couple of months and we will arrange for the photo cell to be changed at the same time.
Thank you again for contacting us, I hope you find my response helpful.
Kind regards Ellie
