Light flickering - Lamp pole F4 and B019

Reported via mobile in the Not working (NH) category anonymously at 01:02, Fri 10 November 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5194914.

Failed light on Lamp pole marked F4 on Northbound side. Light flickering for months(as early as September)

This light malfunction can cause harm to road users with epileptic conditions.

Either repair/replace the light bulb, or turn it off completely. Both options are far safer than having a flickering light on a busy motorway.

Same issue at lamp pole marked B019 further along the M1.

If any work is needed, they will arrange for this to happen. Should no immediate work be required we will continue to monitor this during our regular inspections.

    Although we always aim to complete repairs as quickly as possible, timescales do vary as we try to minimise disruption to customers by combining activities into single closures and always ensuring the safety of our people.
