Restrictive visibility for tractors & trailers hauling straw
Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 12:15, Tue 9 August 2022
Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later.
We are concerned that we are going to be hauling straw across the a361 at the barby welton crossroads & the visilbility is not great. can you trim back the hedges on both sides on the barby exit to the a 361 to aid visibility with tractors & trailers nearly 50 feet long. we are concerned that crossing a fast piece of road with tractors & trailers we need as much visual viewing as we are concerned with road safety. thank you.
Thank you for reporting a fault. Officers will now investigate the concerns and this may take up to 5 working days. If you believe that your concerns are urgent then please phone us.

Thank you for your enquiry and for bringing this matter to our attention. We can confirm that the hedges are responsibility of adjacent landowner to maintain. However, the visibility splay has been mowed out at the junction
