Large stretch of pavement along Dingle road leading into Canford Lane, has overgrown bushes and shrubs at the side, which make it too narrow for wheelchairs.

I would like to bring to your attention the pavements along Sylvan way, Dingle Road, and Canford Lane.

I am a wheelchair user, and I use these roads to get from my house on Sunny Hill, to Westbury-On-Trym to meet my friend for coffee.

The plants at the sides of the pavements are very overgrown, making the path very narrow in places. It makes it vere difficult to fit a wheelchair down the pavement, and impossible to do it without one side of you being in the foliage. This is especially the case on the right hand side as you travel from the portway towards Westbury-On-Trym

It's so narrow that yesterday, coming home from Westbury, I was having to have two wheels on the curb. My wheelchair slipped and I tipped into the road in front of an oncoming car. I'm very lucky that the driver was paying attention and stopped in time.
