The hedgerow along the Buckingham road, On the right hand side as you approach the A43 is overgrown and restricts the view of anyone intending to turn right out of the Buckingham Road industrial estate. You have to cross the junction lines to see whether anything is coming from the A43 up Buckingham road causing a real hazard
Received call from gentleman advising that as of today, there has almost been 2 car crashes as the foliage obstructs the view for the truck drivers turning out of the drive. This might have been fine if it were a car but as this is a business yard for trucks, it is impossible to see passed the foliage .

Thank you for your continued patience. This is still being looked into, but there is a delay with the land registry information for this area. The hedge will be cut back, regardless of whether it is on the adopted highway. Either we will maintain it; or if it's private, and we commence enforcement for the private land owner to do this.
