  • I reported this problem last year. When the leaves had dropped, one could see the lights. Now the leaves have grown again, one cannot see the nearside lights until a few yards away

  • This problem has still not been dealt with. To make it clear, it is the lights by the Black Castle, on the A4320 that are obstructed when using the nearside lane in the direction of Sandy Park. One can not see the lights until almost at them, caused by the leaves on the row of trees that stretch the slow left hand. John Knight

  • I have now found, it is not possible to see the lights in question from the middle lane as well as the nearside lane. This is an urgent situation from a safety point of view, and pedestrians will be unaware of motorists unable to see the lights.

  • I was reluctant to reply " FIXED" though there has been work done and visibility is much improved. There are still maybe 2 trees further back that it would be of benefit to visibility . Other than the trees having to be cut back every year, maybe it it is time to position the lights so they overhang the one lane, as has been done near Avon Meads . John Knight
