St Leonards Drive one-way system blocked to HGVs

Reported via desktop in the Tree/hedge restricting available highway category anonymously at 23:38, Friday 17 November 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 479275.

Some of the branches on the Nature Park side have been trimmed, however, the higher branches are still overhanging, and the vegetation on the left of the road as you go through the one-way system is untouched. Lorries are still travelling along St Leonards Drive in the wrong direction, breaking the law by ignoring the no-entry signs, as proven in the photo that I have attached.

Previous complaints have been returned saying that it's not council land, however, this is a Highways issue, as it is causing people to break the law.

I understand that the land is owned by a local builder, S. Jackson. Maybe Highways can take out an enforcement order to compel him to trim it? As you can see, it is well into the road.
