Overgrown bushes

Reported in the Obstruction category anonymously at 09:51, Tue 16 August 2016

Sent to Bristol City Council 4 minutes later

Buddleia and brambles from the land belonging to the railway are growing through the hedge and making it very difficult to stay on the pavement. They need to be cut back.

  • After several weeks of nothing happening I finally took the bull by the horns and went there with a bow saw and cut off the worst of the branches. Although the footpath is passable there is still a high level overhang of branches and it looks a mess as I had to throw the branches that I cut off back onto the land.

    It’s not as bad as it was but it still needs work.

    Shall I send my invoice to Network Rail?
