The boundary hedges for the properties along this stretch of Highlands Avenue are taking over the public footpath. This is already an incredibly treacherous stretch of road to walk along on the school run made even worse by the fact me and my children can't safely fit on the footpath. We prefer to walk this side and avoid crossing due the to massive volume of traffic turning at the NSG back gate.
