Hedge not trimmed on side of road causing danger to all users, especially horse riders and cyclists.

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 23:15, Monday 15 January 2024

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 5448559.

I reported this last year as the hedge needed trimming back to enable a proper view round the bend on the way to Eakley Lanes and Stoke Goldington. It was not carried out and still needs trimming back from the side of the road. I was informed last year by your organisation that the adjacent landowner would be contacted and requested to cut the hedge, please ensure this is done this year.
