The overgrown vegetation obscuring view at a busy road junction is obscuring the view for vehicles

Reported via mobile in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 07:16, Wednesday 10 July 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6211243.

The overgrown vegetation at a busy road junction is obscuring the view for vehicles at the junction of Highfield lane. Vehicles moving from Highfield lane onto south road cannot traffic travelling south (up) south road. As a result cars pulling out of this junction due to its angle are actually blocking the north bound carriageway for traffic travelling on south road to see clearly. The vegetation is also blocking the already narrow footpath, this is a major safety issue as this provided a crossing point for students in 4 local schools!

  • Northumberland County Council Update-
    We have investigated the issue reported and found that it is on private land. However,
    we do have powers under Section 154 (1) of the Highways Act 1980, to advise the
    owner/occupier of adjoining land they are required to cut back vegetation so as to
    remove the cause or likelihood of danger, obstruction or interference to the users of the
    Highway (footpath). In most cases the vegetation is cut back very quickly by the owner/
    occupier, but in some instances this can be a lengthier process but be assured we will
    follow due process to ensure the work is carried out.
    Thank you for bringing this to our attention

    State changed to: In progress
