  • This still needs to be sorted, the vegetation is still overhanging and restricting the pavement. It’s forcing pedestrians to walk in the road on a busy A-road.

  • This remains an issue restricting pedestrian access to the central refuge on a very busy road! How many weeks does it take to cut a hedge back. Happy to arrange it and send you the bill!

  • Only one month has passed, luckily noone having to walk in the road has been struck by a vehicle.

    Vegetation has obviously grown......

    So I guess all is well from the Highway Authority's perspective?

  • Still taking your life into your hands when you try to go past. Do you need somebody to die before you do anything??

  • I reported this on the 9th July and yet the matter remains outstanding. This is a busy road and the pavement affords access to a Bus Stop and a central reuge.

    I can arrange for this to be sorted by a Contractor and then send you the bill?

    I note others have commented, is this not considered an issue until someone is hurt?

  • If Bathnes are supposed to be encouraging walking and using public transport this is NOT the way to do this. Keeping pavements free from overhanging bushes etc should be a high priority.

  • Not sure whether to laugh or cry. Is someone waiting for winter to deal with this with 'die back'? Nearly three months and still there is an issue. Clearly your actions have been ineffective?
