Poor visibility where bridge has been narrowed to 1 lane

A driver going up the hill does not have a clear view of oncoming traffic. In the photo, the vehicle going down the hill (which has priority) can't be seen by the driver of the car because of the vehicle in between. When I drive my car over the bridge up the hill, I am careful to leave a gap between my car and the vehicle in front to avoid a collision. This delays vehicles behind. Installing traffic lights would help reduce delays and improve safety.

A massive road safety issue this. Traffic lights needed.
Obscured view needs sorting before an accident occurs!
A lot of traffic about and people getting frustrated at peak times!

As I was driving out of Steventon, I saw a car that was involved in a collision today and was parked on the pavement.

This is being looked in to, more permanent signage is being planned, I'm told it'll increase the visibility, just not sure of timescales.

The sign for traffic going up hill warning that oncoming traffic has priority is partly hidden by a tree. The electronic sign for drivers coming down hill, warning them if they are going to fast as they approach the bridge has been turned off.

The electronic speed limit sign for traffic coming down the hill, before the bridge is working but is still set to 30mph, despite the limit having been lowered to 20mph.
