Morton Street obstructed by foliage

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 15:55, Tue 28 September 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

From number 18 Morton Street to Lawrence Hill (A420) the pavement is obstructed by huge weeds. There is insufficient space to allow a pushchair to be wheeled through and when the many cars park on the pavement there is no space to walk along the pavement. On this side of the road Morton Street is called Morton Street and on the opposite of the road it is called Morton Road - don't let that confuse you. I have reported this problem to the two local councillors without response. A neighbour has reported t to Network Rail without any action being taken. ||The pavement has been like this for several months worsening day by day.

  • This is an update to say that the weeds here still have not been cut back. I was forced to walk in the road here today as the pavement was impassable due to the weeds and inconsiderate pavement parking.

  • Update - Overgrowth is still growing through the fence line of the empty parcel of land here, making the already difficult process of using the pavements on the street which are still obstructed by pavement parking daily, an even more difficult and unsafe task.

  • Update - I was unable to use the stretch of pavement that passes the empty parcel of land on Morton Street on Tuesday last as buddleia and other overgrowth has grown to such a large extent, twinned with cars parking on the pavement.
