Hedge row extending into roadway

Reported via desktop in the Weeds category anonymously at 10:56, Sat 26 February 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3345660.

The hedge row extends into roadway all a good portion of this side of the road causing motorist to drive in the middle of road (especially at night when it is hard to judge how far the branches extend) to avoid damage to vehicles. This is dangerous for other road users and pedestrian in the area at the time.

  • The hedgerow is on the East side of the road (sorry my marker is on the wrong side) stretching most of the way along from just past West side as far as Wetenhall Road as well as more overhanging branches just past Cumberland Ave.
