The streetlight outside #6 Laxon Ave, Otara has problems. The light is mounted at a wonky/uneven angle causing the red positive cable to be pulled under tension which may fatigue or stress the cable and terminals. Not sure how secure the light is. The street is straight at this location and the light should be perpendicular to the street to allow light to spill lengthways down the road but because of the incorrect mounting angle a large amount of light spills onto the properties on this side of the street causing light to illuminate bedroom windows even though they are at least 10M from the footpath. The poor mounting angle has been reported directly to AT via their website before but no action after 6 months.
