Roadside Trees/Vegetation obscuring view of oncoming traffic when joining A508 from Grafton Road.

Roadside Trees/Vegetation obscuring view of oncoming traffic when joining A508 from Grafton Road. Due to speed of traffic oncoming (both at speed limit and speeding) view of traffic heading northbound is obscured by trees/hedgerow. Just a small amount of cutback would improve the safety here vastly. I'm getting sick of joining road (along with my family and neighbours) when there is no visible traffic, to almost immediately have a vehicle up my behind being abusive as they feel that i've 'pulled out' on them. So to speak,... This issue was raised last year, it is much worse this year. This vegetation used to be cut back reasonably often by the farmer/council. Not any more...
