Street Lighting

Islington has a Private Finance Initiative (PFI) partnership with SSE Contracting to deliver public lighting services across Islington’s highway network. 

Report a general fault with street lighting

Street lights, illuminated road signs or illuminated traffic bollards which have been damaged or have wiring exposed can be extremely dangerous and should be reported immediately by calling 0800 5877492 . This number operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

It would be very helpful if you can tell us the name of the road, where the equipment is - for example, 'outside house number 20', and any identification number visible.  If you report faults online, the site will guide you to select the exact light, sign or bollard you wish to report.
