  • This problem is becoming more severe and the overgrown hedge is now obstructing visibility at the junction severely. Vehicles emerging from Chequers Lane cannot see traffic approaching the junction from the Teeton direction and it is potentially very dangerous. Have the investigations been completed and is work to solve the problem scheduled ?
