  • This is still a huge problem. Over grown plants over hang the footpath from the Bath Bridge Roundabout to the Three Lamps junction. This is an extremely busy road and very dangerous. Pedestrians are forced onto the cycle way and both paces train footpath and cycle lane are single track. This is an accident waiting to happen. Complaint sent to traffic police as traffic very fast exceeding 30 mph (as identified by speeding sign) and very heavily used.

  • Still a problem. Buddelia grown over footpath by Kwikfit forcing pedestrians into cycle lane. This is a very narrow road only centimetres away from HGV and very fast cars. Please do something urgently even if it means making Kwilfit do it.
