Pavement only one shoe width wide

Reported anonymously at 14:29, Tuesday 12 October 2021

I first reported this on 2 July and again in August. The pavement opposite the Lansdown Park and Ride going North out of the city is so over grown that it is now only a shoe width wide. I regularly walk this path on my way home from volunteering at the racecourse vaccination centre. I was told that it would be included on a regular grass cutting schedule, there is no evidence that this has happened. Several years ago a pedestrian was killed walking along this stretch of road. I would hate for there to be another similar accident caused by someone having to walk in the road because the pavement was no longer useable. I believe the path was originally standard width, ie two people could pass going in opposite directions, this is now impossible. Please do something about it as a matter of urgency, I am fed up of having to navigate the brambles, thistles, nettles, overgrown clumpy grass and now increasing mud as this year's leaves start to rot.
