Shrub in central reservation causing safety hazard

Reported via desktop in the Low hanging branches category anonymously at 16:52, Sunday 23 July 2023

Sent to TfL 4 hours, 21 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS4816825.

Just south of the pedestrian crossing at the back of the Lewisham Centre on Molesworth St. There is a buddleia tree growing in the central reservation which is badly impeding the view southwards. This will cause an accident to somebody crossing the northbound carriageway while the lights are green (reckless behaviour or not on the part of the pedestrian). Several years ago TFL pruned the same bush after I reported the hazard. Would you please do so again, or even remove it? Thank you in advance, it is a very fast road for a short stretch.
