Overgrown shrub, Silverthorne Lane

Reported in the Obstruction category anonymously at 16:25, Mon 16 December 2019

Sent to Bristol City Council 6 minutes later

See attached photo. This shrub/bush has overgrown so much to the extent that it is now causing a very large obstruction of the pedestrian and cycle path between the former Actavo scaffolding and Clark’s Wood Company yards on Silverthorne Lane. It appears someone has tried to pull this shrub down by hand, resulting in a large branch now lying on the path, and this overgrowth hanging much lower now too causing the obstruction for cyclists and pedestrians.

  • The branch has been pulled down but still attached to the tree/shrub. Hanging across the path but not very visible. Dangerous to bikes coming round the corner and to pedestrians. Now worse than in the original photo provided previously. Needs dealing with as priority.
