Tall grass causing obstruction to view oncoming traffic

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) category anonymously at 20:17, Tuesday 1 June 2021

I am aware this has already been reported but is becoming very dangerous to cross the carriageway. A61 dual carriageway junction to westwood new rd Tankersley. You can only see tops of cars coming towards you at up to 60mph as the view is obstructed by grass. You may not see a motor cycle at all. The junction needs closing or the grass cutting asap or a serious accident will occur. More & more people are using the junction as the road from hoyland common has been closed. This needs sorting, very dangerous to cross.
