  • Annually, there are four applications of weed spray, typically applied from spring through to early autumn on paved highways (subject to appropriate weather conditions). Once sprayed 'dieback' should occur within seven to ten days under normal conditions before the residue is removed through routine scheduled street cleaning activities.

    State changed to: No further action

  • Each year we have the same problem as the unit that delivers the spray cannot reach where the weeds are. It requires a human being to do it.

  • Many thanks for your additional comments, this has been passed to the contractor and an operative with a weed killer backpack system will be dealing with this location. Many thanks, JPR - 14/06/2018
