The growth of this hedge along the footpath of Borough Avenue near to the entrance of Old moor Close is limiting the view of the main road when pulling out from the T junction of the close. Its especially bad when looking right ( to pull out) as the road has a dangerous bend and cars tend to drive too fast around this corner, even more so when pulling out on a bike as you take your life in your own hands at times ! It needs trimming back quite severely to improve the view around the bend and would probably be a good idea to check the other side of the T-junction entrance at the same time. A longer term solution may also be to consider speed bumps on this bend in order to slow the traffic down. Thank you
