Most lights not working on A5006

Sent to National Highways 4 days, 14 hours, 14 minutes later

This is a very busy route for vulnerable road users with many cycling and walking across one of the few bridges across the Trent and A500, joining Stoke with employment on Sideway and Trentham Lakes. Large numbers of pedestrians on match days to and from the bet365 stadium, at nighttime heading into winter. More street lights are off than on at night all along the A5006, illuminated signs are not lit either, for example on the large roundabout at Sideway.
