Overgrown verge

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) category anonymously at 13:09, Tuesday 8 June 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

The verge has become so long that when you pull out of West lane you can not see down the eastbound side A38 without pulling out into the road. This is very dangerous as it is a fast road.

Please fix before there is a serious accident

  • The verge/central reservation is very overgrown on the A47, North Burlingham, Norfolk at the cross road junction with B1140. When travelling east and wishing to turn right across the west bound carriageway on to B1140 the visibility is very poor, especially of the outside lane of the west bound carriageway.
