Overgrown hedgerows and verges

Reported via mobile in the Grass and Hedges category anonymously at 14:26, Wed 1 September 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The stretch of road (Sandy Lane) between Yarnton nursery from the A44 to kidlington football club is very overgrown. The overgrown hedges and verges are making the road very narrow in places when vehicles are approaching one another. It is particularly bad at the traffic lights for the bridge over the canal where it is impossible to pass waiting vehicles without going into the near side hedges. My car is now completely scratched along the passenger side. Hopefully these verges and hedges will be maintained soon to avoid further damage to cars :(
