  • Hi - can I add my voice to this too please. The growth is so big I have to swerve round it on my bike into the traffic flow.

  • Really? This hasn’t been touched - this has now been unresolved for two months which is a bit of a joke isn’t it? Please do the job properly and do it quickly.

  • The whole tree needs attention. Not only is it growing out on to the pavement and into the road but it is also growing up around the street lamp. Before long it will become a dangerous hazard.

  • It is already a hazard. I cycle past this every day and have to cycle out into the center of the road into the traffic to avoid this - which adds extra danger to my commute. (And it’s already dangerous enough thanks) . Go on - fix it.
