Bushes overhanging the footway

Reported via desktop in the Weeds category anonymously at 12:21, Fri 8 July 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3660897.

Some conifers were removed from this location in the spring following raising a similar issue. There remains some bushes that are overhanging the footway meaning it is not possible to walk side by side with a child without stepping onto the highway.

The bushes create problems with visibility when driving out of Bosworth Close into Lancaster Way.

The bushes are blocking the name of the street.

  • Hello Could you please provide an update on this as no action has been taken and the amount of material overhanging the pathway is increasing and includes bramble with thorns. Kind regards
