Level Crossing Signage Obscured

Reported in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 12:31, Fri 23 August 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

West of the railway all the signage relating to the level crossing is obscured to unacceptable levels. The vegetation needs to be cut back as a matter of urgency please. There is one sign on the western carriageway that is impossible to see that reads "Park here and use phone at crossing" that should be visible to crossing users after having traversed the crossing. This same sign is totally obscured and leaning over on the eastern side of the railway on the northern side of the road. All these signs need to be visible to road users as a matter of public safety.
