Russian Vine of over 100 yds of fencing along Dingle Road

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 14:43, Wed 10 November 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Despite many reports to say this is closed ad that Contractors have been allocated. Nothing has been done during the whole of this year and the vine continues to encroach over the fencing and part block the pavement from opposite Dinglewood Close to opposite end of Coombe Lane. This is a ridiculous state of affairs which has been reported to the Mayor in the past 2 weeks. I want a honest report and feed back PLEASE!

  • Since 2020 I have been reporting about the lack of action to remove Russian vine from the fence on the Dingle Road with no action taken to have it removed, until late last year, when workmen trimmed the vine from the pavement side of the fence leaving an immense weight of vine on the inside of the fence(see 3rd photo) and a considerable amount hanging on the cabling up the side of the lamp post (see photos 1 before and 2 after)

    I tried to remove the offending vine wound round the lamp post and managed to cut the lower infeed but was unable to remove the remainder which is wound round the heavy electric cable and clearly requires a visit from Western Power to remove the vine from the cable.

    My photo of the inside of the fence shows the extent of vine which I used to remove annually until about 2 years ago .

    It really needs a work party in the land below the fence and down to the Trym Valley to remove the huge amount of growth which grows back so vigorously each year. At 82 years of age I have decided to stop doing the clearance work on the inside of fence each year as I have done since moving to Coombe Bridge Avenue in 2005.
