Pavements on both sides of the crossing point at the end of Westhorpe Road.

Reported in the Footpath / pavement problem category by Helen Fisher at 17:34, Thursday 9 July 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Overgrown vegetation on the pathways means that it is impossible to see the traffic heading towards the crossing point. It is very dangerous to cross the road here even the one carriageway to the central reservation. On both pavements you have to lean out into the carriageway or step onto the road to be able to see approaching traffic to check it is safe to cross the road. The traffic is at high speed on this road, national speed limit and with traffic often at this speed.
