The trees are the responsibility of National Highways, as Clarion Housing who owns the slope says the trees are on Highways Verge. These trees have not been pollarded in 20 years and the canopy needs to be thinned out as they are stopping the streetlights working effectively.
Thank you for making your report regarding the trees on the A47 at Thorney Toll. We have asked our inspection team to attend this location and assess the issue. If any work is needed, they will arrange for this to happen. Should no immediate work be required we will continue to monitor this during our regular inspections.
Although we always aim to complete repairs as quickly as possible, timescales do vary as we try to minimise disruption to customers by combining activities into single closures and always ensuring the safety of our people.
Kind regards National Highways
