Overgrown hedges and bushes

Reported via mobile in the Obstructions on pavements and roads category by Mark Copley at 10:58, Saturday 19 June 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2803369.

This pathway has not been trimmed back for well over a year and so the pathway walkway has been reduced in areas by less than half. This presents a real problem when pedestrians are passing and the overgrown areas. The whole road needs cutting right back to the width of the pathway/ walkway and further up towards the park, needs cutting right back to the wall.

  • Still open, via questionnaire, 11:34, Saturday 17 July 2021

  • Along with the overgrown ivy and bushes, this is encouraging road users to throw trash out of their windows and leave plastic bottles, crisp wrappers, food containers, cans and all sorts to fester in the overgrown bushes.

  • September now and still not sorted? The rubbish and overgrown bushes on both side of the underpass are unacceptable, the pavement is dangerous covered and leaves children on bikes and pedestrians far too close to the dual carriageway. Come on Bexley Council this was reported over three months ago
