Dangerously restricted vision for pedestrians

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 06:31, Mon 30 December 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1909596.

This has been a problem for months. You basically have to nearly go into the middle of the road to be able to see if it’s safe to cross the road. I nearly got hit by a car the other day as It was going quite quickly I did not hear the car coming down Gladstone road to the junction into Harborough road. These bushed need to be cut back in line with the wall. I am concerned there will be a serious accident soon. It is a nightmare to cross the road safely especially with a pushchair!

  • As you can see from the opposite side of the road the bushes are really hanging over the road and are not kept to the line of the wall
