In several places along the B4100 from M40 to Lighthorne Heath there are trees or bushes that have overgrown during the summer and are now growing into the highway area. This means that for cyclists we have to veer away from the kerb and further into the carriageway to avoid them but this puts us in conflict with traffic that are not expecting cycles to move into their path, it's only time before this will cause an accident. There are also various roadside signs that are obscured by bushes too. Specific areas include: at the start of the dual carriageway before the Fosse roundabout and along the approach to Lighthorne Heath village from the Old Gated Road. If these bushes can be cut back to say a meter clear of the kerb (given they will grow again next summer) it will solve the problem and greatly improve road safety for both cyclists and traffic.
