Overhanging Branches Blocking Visibility

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 23:09, Saturday 30 January 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2512956.

A tree's branches are growing outward from a property over the public path, and reaching across toward the road at the location on the map. The branches are obstructing the view of the road for pedestrians when crossing over to Weston Mill Lane. A full clear view of the road cannot be made at a larger distance, sometimes making it difficult to see cars approaching at a distance a little fast.

Also the branches make it a little difficult too pass under when walking along the path, if pedestrian is a bit taller.

Many Thanks.
