The lights cover a footpath, which is obscured by A27 bridge and is now unlit, and pitch black at night for people walking back from town/station, along B2148. The lights are suspended under your bridge, so initially I reported them to Hampshire CC and got the following response; "Thank you for your enquiry regarding the two faulty lights beneath the A27 Bridge on New Brighton Road, Havant. I have checked our systems however these two streetlights are non-maintained units. These lights are maintained by National Highways, please contact Highways directly to report this fault."
Thank you for your report concerning the failed lighting fixed to our structure.
We’re aware of this issue and our lighting team are currently costing replacement works are they are several issues here to be addressed, including that the lights are fed from Hampshire County Council network.

I note other people have complained and have been given a different answer to my original query. I have your response above and a mail from Hampshire CC t o say its your responsibility. With the onset of winter this is now a safety issue as the underpass is unlit, and its dangerous. Please resolve between yourselves and HCC.
