Now the pavement up the A40 adjacent to Old Dashwood Hill has been closed the vegetation on the A40 has not been trimmed back this now makes it very difficult for cars pulling out of Old Dashwood Hill being able to see vehicles coming down the A40. The cars drive extremely fast down the hill and you have to pull right out into the road to be able to see what is coming down. This is another accident waiting to happen on an already dangerous stretch of road.

  • Hedges on the A40 junction of Old Dashwood Hill are still growing out and when leaving the bottom of Old Dashwood Hill you cannot see the vehicles speeding down the A40 where recently there have been two deaths.

  • A small amount of vegetation on the ground level has been cut back but the hedges are still making it very difficult to see the vehicles coming down the hill when you pull out of the Old Dashwood Hill junction onto the main A40 until the vehicles are nearly on top of you this is worse when is small low cars.
