  • Thanks for the update, fully appreciate that the vegetation is not overhanging the highway but it is overhanging the station security fence, we have previously remove trees that have fallen over the fence and repaired the fence. The request was to have vegetation removed back from the fence ensuring a secure fence is maintained with a sterile area between the vegetation and the security fence
