Overgrown shrubbery A27 Hollingbury Junction roundabout

Reported via mobile in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) category anonymously at 11:56, Saturday 31 July 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

As you come off the A27 up towards Hollingbury and Coldean Lane, at the first mini roundabout, the right hand side corner is obstructed by shrubbery and it’s incredibly difficult to see any vehicles coming onto the roundabout from the bridge. You cannot see a car coming until they are entering the roundabout so it’s more of a guess as to when it’s safe for you to enter the roundabout which is incredibly unsafe. It needs to be cut back so drivers have a clear view of crossing.

  • Thank you for contacting Highways England regarding overgrown vegetation at Hollingbury junction and Coldean Lane junction on the A27.

    Having passed this onto our Inspection Team, our Safety Inspector who carried out an inspection earlier today advised that currently at Hollingbury junction, vegetation length isn’t currently obscuring sightlines and doesn’t constitute a safety defect at this time.

    If you're referring to Coldean Lane and Ditchling road junction, the responsibility is that of Brighton and Hove City Council.

    Could we please ask that you contact them to resolve.
