My name is Dave I work in the street lighting department. We are in the process of replacing the streetlights along Watlington Road Oxford and our contractors have come across a dead tree which is leaning on an old column (street light number 47) which they cannot remove safely due to this tree. Would you be able to remove the tree and let me know once done so I can get this streetlight removed? These Lights are being replaced as they have come to the end of there structural life so a quick response would be gratefully appreciated.
All the best
