Pedestrian walkway under the Wilmslow bypass (A34).

These lights have been out for over two years. I initially thought it was linked to the fallen lamp post in Wilmslow Park. The problem in Wilmslow Park has been fixed so it is not related. The lack of lighting leaves the underpass pitch black. I know a number of users - my wife and daughter included - who refuse to use the underpass after dark and either take a long way round or drive. There are over 2000 households in NE Wilmslow who would use the underpass to access central Wilmslow.
Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.
Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.
We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.
During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.
Thank you for your patience.
