Trees overhanging the road causing reduced visibility.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 14:08, Thursday 9 July 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2192984.

The lay by beyond these trees used to be visible but the trees are now huge. If a car, doing 30mph, is just hidden by the trees and coming towards you it takes less than 7 secs to reach you when crossing by the Funeral Directors on Orchard Street. Unfortunately not everyone sticks to the speed limit. An elderly, deaf person with reduced mobility is greatly at risk. This problem has been getting worse every year. The bottoms of the trees have been cut but it doesn’t help where the tops of the trees are hanging over.
