Stone structure erected on verge in a position where it can severely damage passing vehicles. Currently hidden by grass so not visible to drivers on a very narrow road where it is often necessary to move into the side in order to pass opposing traffic traffic.

I believe this structure has already damaged at least one vehicle and presents an on-going hazard, especially to drivers not aware of its presence. Currently hidden by long grass.

Council ref: ENQ21896252

  • I agree with the above comments, these large stones are not only a hazard to vehicles but would be lethal to a cyclist pulling over to avoid on coming traffic. The bend is dangerous at the best of times but the stones make it impossible to pass large vehicles such as buses \, lorries and farm vehicles.

  • Nothing has been done about this very dangerous hazard. Highways need to instruct the householder to remove them or as previously reported the very large stones will cause a serious accident.

  • Still no feedback and the grass has not been cut. This is accident waiting to happen.
