Trees blocking view of road

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 10:37, Mon 31 August 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2271331.

Please note that these pictures are at standing height and at seated car height would be about 2 ft lower shifting the verging of the trees towards the top and the junction with Eastfield Road. It is very difficult at the Knightland road junction and Eastfield Road juction to see traffic on the hill. Your inspector must have been in a large van not to see this last time ?! A car drivers view is different as they are lower down. Even asking the house to cut back the tree on their front would help from Knightlands end but the big tree needs cutting to improve the view from Eastfield and entering from the A6. Would be good to get a result after years of reporting it before the tree falls in a gale killing someone !!
