  • The vegetation inbetween the centre reservation is too high and obstructs view when crossing into Crabtree Road across the northbound carrigeway, this is dangerous and needs cutting back urgently.

  • You can not see traffic in the northbound outside lane when crossing into Crabtree Road because the vegetation is overgrown. This is dangerous. The vegetation needs cutting back urgently before it causes an accident.

  • Too dangerous to take photo. This is an accident waiting to happen. PLEASE address URGENTLY

  • Today I have witnessed car drivers reversing out into the fast lane of the southbound A1 because they can not see to cross the northbound A1. I have also noticed that the verge on the northbound which does not hinder sight has been cut but the central reservation in between the two carriageways has been left, the vegetation is dangerously high and needs to be cut down, car drivers can not see to cross and this will cause an accident.
