Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 18:20, Mon 24 June 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1672751.

This junction is dangerous especially for traffic emerging from Braunston onto the A361.. I have reported the lack of splay and road signs and hedge creating poor visibility over recent years, now the verge is so high that I was nearly hit by a car from Daventry that was mutually hidden.

  • The Braunston turn verge has been cut as at 4.30pm today - the latest correspondent mentions the Barby turn that is further north and doesn't have a reporting pin showing! The growing season has been magnified by the lot of rain and lot of heat. Climate change!
