Corner of Lake Ave and No 1 Packer road visibility obscured by overgrown bush.

There's a massively overgrown laurel bush out on corner of Packer Road and Lake Avenue outside no 1 Packer Road that contributed to an RTA this afternoon because it reduces visibility significantly, resulting in my son being knocked off his bike by a car. The residents English is not very good but she rents the property and she says it wasn't there when she moved in less than a year ago but the size of it tells you its 10-15 years old and desperately needs cutting back for safety reasons and to minimise the risk of same happening again to someone else who might not be so lucky next time. This is a long term issue that is repeated regularly up and down Lake Avenue where access to pavements is reduced or even removed.
