M5 lighting out J6-8

Reported via desktop in the Street lighting (NH) category anonymously at 22:33, Thu 19 May 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3538179.

Much of the lighting along the M5 from J6-7 has gone missing and further down j7-8 there is approximately a 5 mile stretch of lighting that has remained unlit for ages when will these lights be fixed/repaired please?

Thank you

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways.

    We are aware of the issue regarding street lighting on the M5.

    Our inspector has reviewed this issue. We currently have road works on Junction 6. I can confirm that the street lighting has been turned off at Junctions 7-8 as part of a trial.

    We will continue to review this and will arrange any required work if the situation changes.

  • 1: What is the "trial" for junction 7-8 2: Will the central reservation lighting J6-7 be replaced at all within the course of the barrier works and thereafter?

    The answer given hasn't covered all of it.

    Thank you

  • `1: J6-7 did have it's original lighting column heads replaced with led lighting a couple of years ago only for it to now all be taken down so will this stretch be replaced?

    2: Also what is this "trial" exactly with the stretch from J7-8 that remains off!

    Your not even reading the question I am asking properly, your just repeating what I already know hence.
