Grass needs cutting as unable to see approaching traffic around the island....this is causing people to stop at island instead of natural flow....really dangerous....don't know why the grass is only cut once a year

  • Whilst driving through the A46 project this weekend (11th and 13th June 2021), I noted that the grass on the central median at the Walsgrave Hospital roundabout was excessively high, completely obscuring visibility to the right on the approach to the roundabout. This could lead to both potential collisions and reduced efficiency of the roundabout operation, exacerbating the already extensive queues at peak times.
