Overgrown vegetation dangerously obscuring view on roundabout

Coming off the southbound M5 and travelling around to the Weston turning, there's a large amount of overgrown vegetation inside the island which obscures the drivers view as they're about to cross above the motorway. Queues often back up onto the motorway here and there's a risk that a (admittedly inattentive) driver might suddenly find a stationary vehicle in the lane in front of them. If the vegetation is cut down to barrier level then drivers will be able to see around the corner.
Thank you for contacting National Highways concerning overgrown vegetation.
We shall look into this issue and aim to provide a response by 04/04/22.
Can we please ask that you check back on this date for an update.
