Corner of the green and astwick road

Reported via desktop in the Road markings and lining category anonymously at 09:18, Tue 23 November 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 364063.

This corner is extremely dangerous and gets lots of traffic including building site artic lorries. but the main problem is speeding round this corner, cars take this corner too fast and it is also used as a rat run after pub closing times so we get our fair share of dangerous drivers.

My hedge at 1 astwick road has for the 3rd time in 6 years been destroyed by a car taking the corner too fast and ploughing into the hedge. it has destroyed my fence and hedge and just missing our car.

If there were pedestrians (this is a school run route, so lots of young children on the way to st marys school) then we would be looking at serious injuries or fatalities.

Road calming measures need to be addressed for this corner. it is something which has been flagged numerous times to the council and nothing has been done to date and it continues to be a very dangerous corner.
