  • The vegetation on this stretch of the A43 is now so high it is impossible to see approaching traffic when trying to turn right across the dual carriageway into Holmecross Road, particularly traffic in the right hand lane. It is a danger to life. It cannot wait any longer. This problem occurs every year, it needs addressing long before it gets to this stage. I will not use that turning until this has been fixed,
