Trees/undergrowth reducing visibility at junction with A428, accident blackspot

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by James Deacon at 17:31, Monday 22 June 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2167766.

At the Lt Houghton West junction with A428, visibility of traffic approaching at speed from East-to-West along the A428 is severely impeded due to continued outward growth of trees, scrub and undergrowth along the A428 verges. The growth in many places is now level with the kerb. Road users seeking to join the A428 from Lt Houghton have insufficient visibility to safely join the A428. This junction is already a notorious accident blackspot, now made even more deadly by the continued neglect of tree/scrub along the length of this embankment cutting.
