The single light that provides light to the stairs and alleyway leading to 78-88 Archway Road is broken.

Reported in the Single Light out (street light) category anonymously at 11:58, Sun 30 August 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2270336.

The sole light that provides light to the alleyway and stairs has been broken for about a week. This means at night the alleyway and stairs are pitch black and is a safety risk.

I have reported the light a few years ago to be fixed to both TFL and Islington council. TFL fixed the light as it is on a red route.

To access the area it can be reached by driving south on Archway Road and taking the small slip road after going under the bridge. The slip road can be seen on the map. There is parking immediately after coming off Archway Road and this is where the stairs are which have been circled in the provided photo.
