URGENT Overgrown trees on Wellingborough road , rushden (Nn106bf) are causing an obstruction and dangerous to drivers. When Exiting out of Saxonlea close you are unable to see oncoming traffic. This is an annual issue and I don't understand why you cannot set a scheduled maintenance routine. The original reference number is 2869808 which was reported last July (2021). It is the growth at the bottom of the trees which is causing a problem . Please can this be fixed urgently ?
