Both the junction warning sign and the 30mph signs on the left are totally obscured by overgrowing hedges/trees and the 30mph sign on the right is not clearly visible either. This is creating a dangerous situation for traffic pulling out at the junction, especially from Sydenham Road, as traffic on the B4445 is arriving at the junction unaware of the situation, and is usually travelling faster than 30mph. There is a known speeding problem at this location. The visibility for traffic pulling out of the junction is already poor (separate FMS report) and the combination is extremely hazardous. Please could these signs be made more visible as a matter of urgency? Thank you.
