  • Crack has widened significantly since the end of last year. The arch of the bridge is flattened on the side the tree is growing. Sewage line for local houses has the wall resting on it. If tree causes any further subsidence of the carriageway the road could collapse and the tree will hit neighbouring houses. This is potentially a dangerous hazard for the road.
