Poor visibility

Reported via desktop in the Vegetation blocking road or sign visibility - In a residential area category by John Mascall at 11:36, Monday 26 April 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2691648.

When the big steel planters were first installed I complained that it was an accident waiting to happen. The reply was that it had been assessed as safe. I want to repeat my comment now. It is very difficult to see oncoming traffic coming from the Bath direction when exiting Snow Hill.

  • Absolutely, I've complained about the one at Bedford Street. An accident waiting to happen. I have to creep out to see traffic, into the bike lane. On one occasion a bike was coming so I went to reverse but couldn't as a pedestrian was crossing behind my car. I've been told by the council 'not our responsibility'. They're managed by Genesis Trust who, to best of my knowledge didn't reply. The council said, 'they've been no accidents yet so we see no reason to do anything'. Astonishing.
