  • Report 1633331. Can you please update urgently on this as visibility is now worse and vegetation has grown further. Vehicles travelling at over 60 mph and accident is likely anytime. This has been reported for 10 days now and with rain the vegetation has got worse. Urgent action needed please. Thank you.

  • Almost a month now since originally reported. No action. How long does it take to "investigate"?? Needs urgent action before serious accident occurs.

    Please take action and resolve.
