  • I’m confused, on 6 August you commented that the verge was due its 2nd cut and now it’s 27 September and you still haven’t done it? I repeat this is dangerous, pulling out onto fast oncoming traffic, please cut it as a matter of urgency!

  • You said the 2 cut was due in August, you actually cut it in October? During Spring & Summer it will definitely need cutting once every 3 months as weeds grow a lot quicker! Can I suggest you schedule a little better going forward and maybe police the speed people travel along that section of the road?
