Overgrown vegetation causing traffic issues

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 15:55, Monday 5 July 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2842352.

Vegetation at the junction with Dibbin Close is so bad that cars are parking further and further from the kerb. This means that it’s a danger to road users exiting Dibbin Close and also vehicles passing each way on Bridge Street. Cars should not be parked that close to the junction anyway but it is made worse by the overgrown vegetation. Should the fire brigade need access, it would be frustrated by this issue.
