Overgrown trees/hedges all along A 51

Reported via desktop in the Sign Obscured (NH) category anonymously at 19:23, Sun 20 August 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4910220.

Nearly all road direction signs are blocked by overgrown trees and hedges. Unable to read most of them until too close to change direction. The journey from North Wales to Lichfield was hampered by badly obstructed signs all the way.

  • We appreciate you taking the time to notify us about the overgrown vegetation on the footpath at this location, and we’re sorry that on this occasion the time frames to cut back the vegetation is taking longer than we would’ve liked.

    We’re currently behind with our vegetation maintenance work in the area and apologise for any inconvenience or frustration this may cause you and the community.

    Our inspector is in the process of prioritising areas that require additional urgent remedial work whilst our maintenance teams look to catch up with the vegetation maintenance works within the wider area.

    We will continue to monitor the situation and hope to resolve these issues soon.
