Hello, high growing weed-foliage amongst the railings on the SW corner of the roundabout make it difficult for traffic joining the westbound A43 from the northbound A6003 to see a red light at the pedestrian crossing on the A43, having only a brief second to spot it and react. Also pedestrians at this crossing have their view of approaching cornering traffic obscured. The foliage has been growing for a while. The other corners are also affected similarly. Thanks.
