Overgrown verges

Reported in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 20:09, Thursday 20 June 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

With the overgrown vegetation and the village sign, we are struggling to see the road to our left when coming out of our driveway and no. 7 Boddington Road. We have to pull almost into the middle of the road before we can see if anything is coming. I hope it will not be too long before the verges are cut back and would request that the verge on the first corner past no. 7 is cut right back.

  • This is the view we have of the road when trying to leave our driveway. The pictures the other day were from standing, not inside the car. The view is severely restricted.

  • Thank you for your report.In 2019, the county council will carry out one general cut a year across the whole of the county's road network. This includes visibility splays at junctions and grass verges one metre back from the kerb. We started the general cut in May 2019 and hope to have all verges which we are responsible for/which is not all of them, are completed by june 2019..We are also dealing with visibility splay sites in accordance with safety requirements of individual sites. I have visited the location given on 20.6.2019 and found no grass/verge related visibility issues during my visit.
