Vegetation overhanging into road covering the grass verge

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 17:39, Monday 7 March 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3369762.

A pedestrian was walking on the verge past overhanging vegetation as I drove off the roundabout causing me to swerve into opposite lane, as there is a blind spot on the bend. This vegetation creeps closer to the road each year, especially when covered in leaves and looks to need a good cut back

  • Still not resolved and there no evidence that these have been cut back inteh last 5 years. daily hazard as it narrows the road at a busy junction and further up rockingham road prevents easy access to a bus stop.
