The overgrown hedgesrows and trees are knocking down our fencing. Also the ditch needs the sides cutting as it will cause a problem if there are heavy rains/flooding.

  • Thank you for contacting Highways England.

    We carry out regular inspections of all our roads and cut back the vegetation where we find that it is limiting visibility of road signs, traffic signals or the view ahead. Your concerns have been passed to our maintenance team. They will inspect the area shortly and if necessary, arrange for vegetation/grass to be cut.

    Kind Regards Highways England
