Russian Vine on contoversial pavement

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 08:58, Wednesday 12 June 2024

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6096905.

Yesterday I spotted this disabled gentleman trimming the Russian vine on the fencing opposite Dinglewood Close as it it is clearly obstructing his mobility vehicle. I spoke to the gentleman to congratulate him and update him on my involvement with this fence and the annual problem of Russian vine, and said I would take a photo , with his permission, and report it to BCC for URGENT ACTION. PS I have personally trimmed back Russian vine on the approx 100 yds of fence length of fencing for the past 18 years but was thwarted in my efforts this year as the owner of the land behind the fence has built a new fence which prevents me crossing onto the reverse side of the fence to work on the vine on that side, This incident with a disabled gentleman attempting to clear a way from his mobility buggie and with a collection buggie for the cutting is remarkable and, at the same time, a reflection on the lack of attention given by BCC to maintain this particular fence of vine over many years despite calls to do so,. I am tempted to write an article for to Bristol Post as I have seen this public minded disabled gentleman clearing the hedge beside the pavement further along Dingle Road over the Trym Bridge .
