Zebra crossings not lit up
Reported via mobile in the Crossings Beacons category anonymously at 20:05, Wednesday 1 November 2023
Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5163926.
The zebra crossings, used heavily by the school children are not lit up. The flashing warning bulbs are not working. Which is making the area very dark and with winter now here its making it difficult to see people at the crossing waiting to cross.

Please can the council as a matter of urgency deal with the lights not working on the pelican crossing on Ashwell road and lack of street lighting- there are two primary and private schools here and the children are having now to cross in the dark- this is extremely dangerous for drivers and pedestrians - black school uniforms and winter coats will not show up on dark nights and there will be a terrible tragedy soon if these lights are not fixed. Please can you make it a priority for your team before someone gets hurt

The crossing here is used all day long by boarding students who don't finish their day until 6 - 8 pm, and who wear black school uniform. It is incredibly dangerous for them to have to cross the road in the dark because the lights have still not been fixed on the crossing (despite multiple requests).
