Hedge too high

Reported in the Restricted Visibility category anonymously at 11:24, Mon 3 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1647194.

On the bend at Station Rd Irchester there is a big field and the hedge is badly overgrown. This is a highways problem due to restricted visibility for cars both ways. This is a busy bend in the Village and now has extra traffic because the A45 is down to one lane due to railway bridges.

  • I live at 158, right on the bend. The hedges are so overgrown now I can’t see oncoming traffic to pull onto my driveway. This is risking a serious RTC as every time I pull on I’m doing it blind. Please can this be placed as a priority as I’ve already had several near misses over the last week

  • Visibility is virtually zero for residents trying to get onto their driveways at this point on Station Road. Each time is a gamble and it’s disappointing to see this was reported 6wks ago and still no action has been taken ...
