Vegetation grown too high to see traffic coming from bypass.

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) category anonymously at 12:33, Thursday 15 July 2021

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

The trees and vegetation has grown too high, as a pedestrian we cannot see traffic that is speeding off the bypass onto the Wimborne side of Wimborne Road West. I have spoken to our local authority at the scene and they tell me it is your responsible, so please before someone gets knocked over clear a view.

    Our inspector has reviewed this issue recently and doesn’t feel it is a safety concern at this time. This is because the roundabout is traffic light controlled and pedestrians can cross when the traffic has been stopped.
