Undergrowth restricting access from Sea Mills Lane to Meadway

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 08:53, Wed 29 December 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

I take my grandson out in his pram and if someone is coming the other way someone has to walk in the road to get by. Shirehampton road is very busy and I'm scared someone will get hurt if this is not resolved. The problem is caused by a thick mat of brambles, stinging nettles and Ivy creeping across footpath limiting access, this needs to be cut back to the existing line of the hedge.

  • The pavement between Mead Way and Millpill bridge should be about 2 metres wide. At present it is about 1 metre wide in places due to the thick mat of ivy, brambles and nettles covering it. It is impossible to walk hand in hand with a small child without legs being torn to shreds or stung by nettles. This could have been fixed when the safety railings over the river were being replaced, but unfortunately it wasn't their department or remit, though it was possible for them to clear the exact length of the railings. Trimming back the vegetation isn't really an option. It needs to be scraped back to restore the original width of the tarmac. I agree with previous complaint about the road safety hazard.

  • I agree with previous comments, Stinging nettles and other plants are encroaching across footpath making it really difficult for parents taking children to Primary School nearby as they have to go single file in places. The nettles are at small child level and need to be cut right back asap.

  • This issue has not been resolved. It would appear that someone has strimmed the most protruding 6 inches of vegetation. However it still covers the major part of the pavement. It needs to be stripped back to the edge of the tarmac and removed.

  • This issue has still not been resolved. We emailed the Parks Department and got an automatic reply stating we should put it on Fix my Street! Please can someone within the Council please take responsibility and sort it out and stop passing it between departments!
