Private hedge obstructing road

Reported in the Other public road issue category anonymously at 10:29, Wednesday 2 September 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2274547.

There is a private hedge obstructing the roadway. It is forcing drivers to either clip their left wing mirrors along the bush or ( at the moment ) drive on the centerline of the road coming up to the junction. If it gets any worse the cars leaving Sevenacres will be forced to be on the wrong side of the road. To give you an Idea of how bad it is , the bushes are now covering the double yellow lines. When two cars meet , it is starting to become a bit of a tight squeeze. If someone is turning left into the close and there is a car at or approaching the junction from Sevenacres, there is a fair possibility that there could be a minor collision. All it would need would be for the owner of the hedge to trim it back to the kirb level. I have a 4x4 ( which I need for work ) I either have to brush my left wing mirror against the bushes or ride the wight line.
