Overgrown Bushes

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility category anonymously at 11:30, Wednesday 21 September 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3838486.

Coming out of newnham on the preston capes rd for about 200 meters the hedge on the left is so overgrown it is narrowing the road so that it is only suitable as a single track road, not everyone is slowing down sufficiently to be able to pass safely and we have had our car scraped a few times as we have had to turn into the hedge to avoid being hit. this is making it very dangerous to use, also as a pedestrian you have to walk along the road as there is no footpath and it is becoming very precarious and unsafe to use. the hedge needs trimming back urgently to avoid an accident and danger to pedestrians.
