Over grown hedges

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 08:06, Thursday 10 June 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2781423.

These hedges make it very difficult and dangerous to pull out as you can not see on an already dangerous junction with cars doing 60mph plus. This has been like it for a few weeks now and it is getting worse

  • Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We understand that you have concerns about the condition of the hedges on this section of Wellingborough Road; specifically that you feel they are overgrown and restrict visibility of the road. We appreciate your concerns and can confirm that the verges and hedges in this area are programmed to be cut, in the near future, under our maintenance programme. This will most likely be in October, as there are currently birds nesting in the vegetation there. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
