Giant Hogweed reported on A27/A23 junction

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) (NH) category anonymously at 11:20, Mon 4 July 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3645879.

2 large clumps of what looks like Giant Hogweed, a poisonous (causes burns and potentially blindness) and invasive species of plant. Plants are now around 150cm + in height so well established. One clump between Hove junction and A23 junction, one clump at A23 junction, both on central reservation. Unable to take photos as nowhere safe to park. Plant looks a bit like large cow parsley. Central reservation on A27 between Hove junction and A23 junction
