  • Its a constant problem. Every year it has to be requested. Radley college own the land and lease it to the farmer who also cuts the hedge. Hedge needs removing completely to make the corner as safe as it can be. (Its narrow and even when the hedge is cut back , still a challenge for cycles/pedestrians.

  • The hedge is now above 5ft which means cars are hidden whilst coming from the Radley Road. My daughter on a tow along was almost hit by a left turning car because he was looking for cars whilst entering the roundabout, and I was unable to see him quickly enough before crossing. This is dangerous. As mentioned, it is reported every year - it needs to be taken down to below car eyeline, or taken out completely. PLEASE, before someone is knocked down again.
