Bushes trees and shrubs need cutting back

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) (NH) category by Richard Evens at 17:25, Thu 26 January 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4174251.

I have reported this many many times before. as you navigate the bend to join the A34 you cannot see round the bend due to the trees, shrubs and bushes on the nearside that have been left to grow since 1998. In 1998 there were no shrubs when this road was built. The reason it is dangerous is that you cannot see if there is anyone stopped on the slip road till it is too late. If they were cut back at least 2m from the carriageway this would make this junction much safer. Someone died here on Sunday. Please can we get this sorted? As you leave the roundabout the shrubs are so bad they have grown over the crash barrier obstructing the signs that warn for the bend and cyclists. This also needs completely cutting back
