I second the above complaint.
I work in chalgrove and travel through this junction every weekday. This evening I nearly seen a bad accident between a car containing a mum and 3 children and a BMW. The lady driving was so shocked she stopped in the middle of the road. I have also seen a number of other near misses myself.
As you turn right from hollandtide lane onto the B3009 it is very difficult to see. Pulling out is very dangerous and I've had 2 near misses myself in the past. The hedge is cut a couple of times a year but doesnt last long at all. I have work colleagues who have also had near misses at this junction.
There are signs in place saying reduce speed now and also white slow signs on the road but people ignore them.
I hope this is sorted out before someone is killed. It would be good to see a more permanent solution rather than the edge being trimmed now and again.
I have reported this incident to 111.

To amend a mistake in the above comment. I meant as you turn right from hollandtide lane onto the B4009 (The Sands) not the B3009. Thank you
