Hi - I agree with the report regarding Pitsford Road from the Bramptons to A508. In my opinion this issue needs to be dealt with urgently - the road is an extremely busy rat run, having both cars & heavy lorries. The speed limit is much too high at 50mph, when it should be a maximum of 40mph. This rat run mentality of "professional" drivers means frequent dangerous overtaking manoeuvres of pedestrians and bicycles on a road with semi blind bends. There is so much vegetation growing across the path that pedestrians and cyclists have to use this dangerous road.
Please can the speed limits of this road be looked at & the path cleared & if possible widened & resurfaced.
Thanks ... Ian
