Oxford road, Ryton Crossing

Pedestrians crossing the Oxford road (walking TO Ryton) can only see the road to their immediate right. As it’s a road with the National speed limit, it is currently unsafe for the pedestrian as they can not see often fast moving vehicles until they have already begun to cross. A sign warning vehicle drivers of pedestrians crossing would be insufficient as many vehicles approach the roundabout at speed looking to their right to gauge whether they have to slow or stop for ongoing vehicles. Such a sign would only add to signage clutter, would be disregarded by many drivers and possibly obscured by growing vegetation. I am requesting a site visit please to ascertain whether the vegetation is the cause of the visual impairment or whether it is the positioning of the pedestrian crossing. A lot of people walk along this excellent foot way so I am sure they would appreciate the council’s work on this matter.
