M5 J8-4a street lighting missing and not working

Reported via desktop in the Street lighting (NH) category anonymously at 20:53, Sun 19 June 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3608247.

There are vast stretches of the M5 from J8-4a that are either unlit or had the lighting removed.

Will the lighting between J7-8 be switched back on?

Will there be any replacement lighting installed? between junction 7-4a as it's currently all removed

  • Yes this reports involves faulty/defective lighting which is a defect surely, lighting out on the M5 J7-8 etc? There is no clear answer else where on your site or anything as to what is going on with it? Therefore surely it should still be answered on here?
