Little pavement left to walk on, busy throughfare

Reported in the Vegetation overhanging a road or pavement from private land or property category anonymously at 09:54, Tuesday 16 June 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 1 hour, 9 minutes later. Council ref: 2149639.

I couldn't get the pin to reposition, but it's as you go up Wells Rd, by this b&b. Even on my own with my dog it doesn't feel very safe, too near cars. But it's impossible to social distance there, and now traffic has increased tricky to switch to the opposite pavement. Can it be cut back (a lot) so the pavement is fully functional again please asap

  • Location: corner of Upper Oldfield Park and Wells Road, by the Oldfiends Hotel, running along Wells Road. Vegetation has taken up most of pavement. Needs cutting right back to allow access, and safety for pedestrians on the very busy road. ASAP. Reported one month ago, no action taken yet. An accident waiting to happen.
