Heading towards Corby, the 40mph sign on the left hand side of the Oakley Rd cannot be seen properly by motorists etc

Reported in the Obscured by vegetation or Dirty category anonymously at 12:21, Thu 20 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1668222.

The hedgerows on the left hand side of Oakley Rd heading towards Corby from Pipewell are very overgrown to the extent they are obscuring the 40mph sign, as well as obstructing the visibility of the road for people coming out of their drives. (This has also been reported with no action taken). I am the Parish Councillor for Pipewell and residents have informed me about their serious concerns on the matter.
