Restricted view on bend
Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 19:57, Friday 28 June 2019
Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1678005.
On leaving Irchester and entering the National Speed limit section of Gipsy Lane, the verge to the left is very overgrown.
This obscures the Irchester Country Park sign, but more importantly, hides the fact that there is a bus stop just around the bend.
A non-local on entering the National Speed limit section will accelerate and without being able to see the warning for the entrance to the Country Park or the bus stop, this is an accident waiting to happen.
A very poor attempt to clear the Country Park sign was made recently, but it isn't good enough.
This has every potential to result in a very serious incident and needs to be resolved very quickly.
Thank you for reporting a fault on the highway. We will use the information you have provided to assess and prioritise this fault in accordance with our published response times for fault reports.
