  • The overgrowth is getting worse with the spring growth. It won't be too long before the path is impassable.

  • Yet another complaint about this lane. I have been complaining for over a year now. Very badly overgrown with brambles. Stinging nettles etc. It gets very slippery with mud/silt when raining. The reen running along this lane is completely blocked with rubbish, & brambles etc, rats everywhere. Gypsies have damaged the fence. As for the subway that is still flooded from last month. It's about time this was sorted out before somebody has an accident

  • Went down the lane today, Shirehampton end is really bad, but now none of the lights in the subway are on, it's pitch black down there and dangerous. Somebody will have a serious accident soon

  • Absolute disgrace, and dangerous. Very slippery with the mud & silt (at the shire end of the lane). Getting stung by nettles and scratched in the head with brambles etc. About time thus was sorted. Nothing has been done since complaining last year

  • Struggling to get down the lane now. Getting scratched by overhanging brambles, stung every day by stinging nettles, still very slippery with mud/ silt half way down lane. Subway lights no longer work, and still a bit flooded, graffiti all-over walls, absolute disgrace

  • I have just walked down this lane, it's treacherous, slipped 3 or 4 times in the mud/silt, been scratched by the badly overgrown brambles, stung by the nettles, then got to the subway, and flooded, this is an absolute disgrace, you obviously don't care about people's safety, (as long as you people are OK driving to work). It's now a lot worse than these photos. I suggest somebody from the council/ highways agency walk down to investigate it. I would like a refund ASAP, this has been going on since last year, bloody shame on you
