Hedge and trees overgrown

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Luke Stimson at 16:51, Sunday 10 October 2021

The hedge and trees have overgrown so much you can nolonger see vehicles coming over the bridge. Years ago this was always maintained by the farmer but the road is so fast and dangerous he had to stop doing it. You used to be able to see clearly from the greenway road all the way to the top of the bridge which is heading towards Milton Keynes. This has not been the case for several years and I fear much longer there will be a fatal accident soon.
