Hazard #15289

ID #15289
Status Fixed
Location SD 49142 49980
Location Description On the west side of the A6 between Middle Holly Rd and Ratcliffe Warf Lane.
Road Name Preston Lancaster Rd
Hazard Type Other
Hazard Description Overhanging Hedge/trees. The hedge and trees along part of this stretch are overhanging the road by several feet forcing cyclists to ride well out towards the middle. I don't think they have been cut for years and are only trimmed back by the HGVs. Please get the owner to cut this back at least 2 feet behind the kerb and clear the debris from the road. A flail with a good blower should do this.
