Dangerous overgrown hedge

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category by Jennie Phillips at 19:26, Wed 21 June 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4701535.

For over a year now this has been an issue and is now dangerous. What 3 word location is ///junction.contoured.narrating Hedge has swallowed all the road signs along this short section between the 2 roundabouts, on approach to the A14 roundabout. Also in a couple of places along this section the hedge is protruding on to the road scratching cars. This is dangerous and damaging vehicles, forcing people to use the wrong lane or straddle 2 on approach to the A14 roundabout. Would have taken photos but it's such a busy road.
