  • I'm not sure where you looked but the street light on the left hand side of the road as you enter Whitegates and outside No 1 is ineffective and does not give the light coverage it should over the junction

    It was raised at the parish council meeting and again tonight when a Highways officer attend a meeting in West Hunsbury.

    Trees on both sides of the road need cutting back as the are hitting vehicles, restricting visability at the junction

    State changed to: Open

  • The visibility is reduced as is the effectiveness of street lighting at the junction. The overhanging branches are causing damage to high vehicles Please rectify as soon as possible before an accident happens it is difficult junction because of the siting of the post box and bus stop opposite the junction
