  • The overhanging hedges at 511 and 513 Bath Road Saltford BS31 3HQ are continuing to be a significant obstacle to pedestrians especially those partially sighted or with limited mobility. This overgrown vegetation is forcing people into the busy A4 at a point near a pedestrian refuge and a bus stop opposite. It is a busy section of pavement. Needs action. Safety issue.

  • Why has nothing been done?! Urgently needs fixing before a pedestrian ends up in the busy road.

  • The Council's apparent lack of action to deal with this safety issue is the subject of a formal complaint sent to BANES on 4 November. Their response is awaited.
