Dangerous pedestrian crossing due to visibility obscured by vegetation

Reported in the Restricted Visibility category anonymously at 19:55, Wednesday 17 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2160890.

Visibility splay from pedestrian crossing indicated on map, onto adjacent roundabout is completely obscured by dense vegetation on the corner of Birchington Road. Owing to the speed of traffic entering Birchington Road from the roundabout, we have had several near misses. We understand from neighbours, that they too have experienced close calls when using this crossing. We feel quite strongly that a pelican crossing is required.
