Impossible to see oncoming traffic when exiting on to the A507

There is a serious issue with the exit from Throcking Lane onto the A507, and I am seriously concerned that there will soon be a serious accident at this location.
After my first report of the issue, the verge has partially been cut, but the 'new hedge' that has been planted means the cutting has been minimal. There is still zero sight lines from Throcking Lane onto the A507 when trying to exit. It is impossible to safely exit Throcking Lane, onto the A507, as there is just no way to get a view of on-coming traffic, in either direction, unless you are sat in a lorry, or similar large vehicle.
The new hedge needs to be removed, and the verge cut correctly - OR THERE WILL BE A SEIOUS ACCIDENT!
Why was the new hedge allowed to be planted so close to the road, preventing correct verge cutting? And what are we, the residents of Throcking, supposed to do when the hedge is actually fully grown?
