Overgrown Bushes & Trees Obscuring Newark Road
Reported via desktop in the Overgrown trees category by James Nimmo at 22:54, Tuesday 7 June 2022
Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3579420.
The trees and bushes here are overgrown and are obscuring the view to Newark Road. If you're coming past Varity House on Vicarage Farm Road towards the roundabout, you'd give way to other road users coming down Newark Road, looking to your right. This is problematic due to the overgrown bushes and trees that obscure the view of Newark Road. I've seen several near misses and as a driver myself entering the roundabout, it's clear to go at first, but due to the obstruction you can't see cars coming down. Leaving you to slam on. If these could be cut back to free up the view down Newark Road it'd be helpful.
