Overgrown hedge blocking visibility

Reported via Android in the Visibility at junction or bend category anonymously at 08:11, Friday 11 September 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 376365.

I've reported this before & had no joy, but visibility is now completely obscured by the hedge. I have to put the car window down & listen for traffic (no use with electric cars though). It's impossible to see cars & motorbikes approaching from the right. Please also chop the bush near the large tree (junction side) as even when the hedge is cut, that bush obscures visibility.

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because our tree officer visited the site on 22 September 2020 and reported the only obstruction to visibility is an oak tree to the west of the junction. It is mature, growing from a ditch, not on the highway. We don't have the grounds to require the landowner to remove the tree. Thank you for reporting this matter.
