Overgrowth of Vegetation Medway Drive

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 19:43, Tue 9 May 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4533906.

There’s a serious overgrowth of thorny bushes on the Main path way at eye level (I’m 5’ 2”) on Medway Drive between numbers 23 & 27. It’s been like it for about 2 months or more and happens every year. The grass verge has just been cut, it’s a shame the greenery wasn’t pruned at the same time.
