  • This issue with the fence was highlighted earlier today when a car drove round the corner and came face to face with a pedestrian. The pedestrian had nowhere to take refuge as the fence removed this strip as an option. Luckily the car stopped in time to avoid a collision. The issue is the fence is exasperated by a hedge that has been planted by the same household which again crosses the highway boundary and blocks a clear view around the corner.
