Hedge growth blocking road junction vision splay.

Reported via iOS in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 10:16, Friday 18 September 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The hedge growth adjacent to the junction of West Street and High Street/Epwell Road is blocking the sight line looking westerly up Epwell Road when pulling out of West Street onto High Street/Epwell Road. Hedge growth needs to be cut back. This is significant as vehicles coming easterly into Shutford have only just crossed the 60mph down to 30mph speed reduction so sight lines need to be good to see approaching traffic.
