Overgrown grass on verge obscures view of oncoming traffic. VERY Dangerous

Reported via desktop in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 11:35, Thursday 3 June 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

VERY Dangerous as the grass has become so long on the verge that it's impossible to see around the corner turning out of North Hinksey Lane and the access road. There is a street sign located where the grass is very long and this is also obscured, which is problematic for emergency services.

Council ref: ENQ21896399
