Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3047476.
All of the street lights have been off for many months along Belvedere Road / Bazelgette Way, there is an arts centre open here that has occasional evening events and studios are accessible 24 hours so pedestrians are using it regularly in the evening but there is no lighting to the north of Southmere Park, as we go into shortened days there needs to be street lighting on the road side and on the pavement side too, thank you

I'm Adonis from Bow Arts and I manage the Lakeside Centre. Could we please get an update or a timeline for when the problem with the street lights will be resolved?
The lakeside centre supports over 35 enterprises in Thamesmead, as well as a cafe and a nursery. Getting these lights turned on would support the safety and wellbeing of those travelling to and from the lakeside centre. As days get shorter, there are parents picking up from nursery after dark. With the recent incidents of violence against women in South London, everyone is conscious of the need for well-lit streets.

This problem has now been fixed and the street lights should be working again.

The lights have been reinstated all along Bazelgette Road, although be useful some of the pavement ones are turned on (maybe Peabody's responsibility?).
