Hexton Road, opposite Manor Road junction

Reported via desktop in the Hedges category anonymously at 09:15, Monday 12 July 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 359088.

The hedge opposite Manor Road is overgrown, encroaching to obscure the road signs and causing a danger to pedestrians crossing the road from Church Road. This is a very busy road with traffic travelling from Hitchin on the B655. There are also lots of pedestrians crossing at this point to access the Barton Springs Nature Reserve AONB due to limited parking on Church Road. The new crossing point is well used by visitors, residents and school children and it is increasingly dangerous with limited sight lines on this bend in the road.
