Branches of trees are TOTALLY obscuring 30mph signs

Reported via desktop in the Low hanging branches category anonymously at 16:45, Sunday 16 May 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2729508.

Here you have to drop from 60mph to 30mph, immediately before a fairly sharp corner. The 30mph signs on both sides of the road are now TOTALLY obscured by tree foliage. Very dangerous.

  • The branches have still not been cut and we missed the 30mph speed signs to find a policeman on the other side speed monitoring. Luckily we had been going slow enough. As the weather has been very wet and as well as sunny they’ve got much worse a lot more quickly and think from a safety perspective this needs to be escalated.

  • The 'reduce speed now' sign and 30mph signs (you need to slow from 60/70 mph to 30mph) are now TOTALLY obscured. They urgently need to cut them.

    And is it a surprise that trees and shurbs grow rapidly in late Spring? This shouldn't have needed to have been reported, and you should proactively cut (or move the signs further back) in Spring.
