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

This is still a problem and has not been rectified by the owner. This is very dangerous for both children and Adults crossing here
