Overgrown hedgerows

Reported in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) category anonymously at 19:25, Tue 28 July 2020

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

Very limited visability when crossing the A120 in an easterly direction, due to the excessive growth of hedging near to the roadside in both directions when looking towards Great Tey. This is a very fast stretch of road, many people cross here, including horses, cyclists and children, complicated by the fact that cars are exiting Tey Road opposite. This problem has got worse over a number of years, the hedging used to be cut severely back on a regular basis, now it is just trimmed.

  • I am disappointed that you don't consider there to be a problem. Having crossed the A120 at this point for many years, I find that the hedging is now limiting the visability in both directions. The speed limit is in theory 50 mph but in reality it is a lot faster. In years gone by the hedging was cut back severely to keep it well away from the roads edge, which enabled you to judge your crossing safely. It is fine crossing the road from the opposite side ( towards Coggeshall) as you can see the full length of the road in both directions.
