Gutters blocked with weeds

Gutters and pavement (where it meets the kerb stones) full of weeds. This is damaging both road surface and pavement. Weeds might be treated but they are simply left to rot so they block gutters and give new weeds somewhere to root and grow.

  • Not fixed, as of yesterday (6 Aug 2019) Just about everywhere you look, every gutter, certainly in the north end of Weymouth, Radipole, Broadwey etc there are weeds happily sprouting out of the gutters, impeding water flow into drains and gradually increasing in amount and coverage.

  • Still the same, if it’s had weed killer applied then it’s not been successful at all. The gutters and edges of pavements are becoming shocking throughout Weymouth and if the problem isn’t dealt with it will be that much harder to fix when (if!) funds do become available.

  • Weeds still abound. Looking healthier than ever now. All surrounding pavements are sprouting weeds.
