It is disappointing that nobody to date has carried out any work to the problem of the over grown hedge narrowing the highway near the former Elm post office highlighted by The Wisbech Standard on February 29.

Despite various letters and emails to the authorities they felt there was no problem. But after intervention by the Wisbech Standard it was agreed a problem exist and the owner was to be given 14 days to get the hedge cut back.

Failing that the council would carry out the works and charge the householder.

It is only a B road but if the A47 gets blocked as happens all too often the volume of traffic some increases with many HGVs making the site even more dangerous.

Perhaps the power of the press will yet prevail and make the road safer for all.
