Barrier fencing due to roadworks obscuring view when pulling out of Polwell Lane onto the A6

Due to works taking place on junction of polwell lane and Barton Road (opposite Barton Hall) orange security fencing completely obscures the view of vehicles pulling out from Polwell Lane. This needs to be changed to Herras fencing to enable vision through the fencing. I have just been witness to an accident which involved a vehicle pulling out of Polwell Lane and being hit side on by a car travelling down Barton Road towards Kettering.
