View of approaching traffic on roundabout obscured by hedge

Reported in the Roads/highways category by John Cooper at 14:52, Mon 9 May 2016

Sent to Bristol City Council 3 minutes later

Southbound traffic entering the roundabout from the A4320 cannot see approaching vehicles on the roundabout, especially those in the outside lane. I reported this to the council on two occasions over the past year, but all they did was trim the hedge and closed the case. The view is still obstructed.

  • I was astonished to hear from the Highways dept that they deliberately left the hedge obscuring the view onto the roundabout to create a hazard as traffic calming measure. Outrageous in my view. If I learn of a resulting serious incident at this location I will cause a big stink for them.

  • The view for traffic travelling South on St Philip's Causeway and entering the roundabout with junction of Whitby Road is dangerously obstruted when using righthand lane.

    Many vehicles have no option but to cross the give way line and cause a hazard to vehicles on the roundabout and themselves before viewing approaching traffic.

    At the very least the last 2 feet of the planting requires considerable prunning less an incident will surely occur.
