Hedges encroaching into the carriageway

Reported via desktop in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 09:11, Mon 6 December 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 410987.

This section of Brackenborough Road has hedges now encroaching into the carriageway.

This is a narrow section of road with no central white line (no road markings) and the encroachment is forcing vehicles closer together - I have had a number of near misses / been forced onto the verge when travelling towards Louth, by vehicles not keeping left because they are scared of / avoiding the hedges.

Please can these be trimmed back.
