Crossing the road at the corner of Redland road and South Road is obstructed by overhanging shrubs. Traffic approaching from Cotham Brow can’t be seen and makes crossing the road dangerous. This has been reported previously weeks ago by several people and not been acted upon.

  • The branches have now been cut back to head height leaving dangerous cut ends of pyracanthus branches. Please can the householder be asked to cut the growth back to a clear 2.3m headroom and to remove the growth of ivy etc which hangs over the wall of the property causing an obstruction of the pavement. This pavement is narrow and is on a main route to school for students at Cotham Primary school Elmgrove site. The current situation is dangerous for them and for people crossing Redland Road via the central traffic island. The road sign is also obstructed.

  • This photo is of my eye height. This pyracanthus has STILL not been cut back. It is a thorny bush with very hard sharp thorns which can cause severe allergic reactions. People are having to walk in the road to avoid it near a road junction which is already dangerous for cycles and pedestrians. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT THIS IS DEALT WITH IMMEDIATELY.
