The weeds along the road have been growing up. I don't think the weeds have been cleared at all this year

  • 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.

  • Here is a photo of the weeds growing up in front of my house and you can see more weeds further along the street. Is there a record of when the weed spray was last applied? Also, I have not seen the street swept since we moved in over a year ago. Do you have a record of when the street was meant to have been swept?
