Obscured view, coming out of the Stapleton Village road onto the A49.

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

The hedge from Stapleton turn to the Bridge has grown and not been cut. It is now obscuring the view of traffic approaching from Dorrington/Church Stretton direction. Traffic approaches this junction in excess of 50mph. You cannot see approaching traffic, and therefore cannot safely pull out of the junction to turn right towards Dorrington. There will soon be a serious accident when someone pulls out unable to see fast approaching traffic. Also the temporary bend and junction signs approaching this turn from Shrewsbury direction are still there. They are often obscured by long grass and also blown over. They have been there for many years now, can they urgently be replaced with proper signs on a post that can be seen. Traffic turns right here just over a brow of a hill, and no warning is given without these signs in proper view. Also a “Danger traffic turning right “ would also help as well, and again hopefully save a serious accident.

  • This still has not been cut, and is getting much worse. Other hedges close by have now been cut, but this one the most urgent one was not!!! A bit of the grass verge was cut, but that was not the problem, it’s the Hedge, that is obscuring the view. A serious accident will occur here if it is not done immediately
