Nettles, shrubs and brambles overgrowing the footpath, forcing pedestrians into the cycle lane

The nettles and plants have grown out a lot around the three lamps area and outside Kwickfit in the last couple of weeks, so that I've seen women with pushchairs having to step into the bike lane to get around them.

  • This is still a huge problem. Over grown plants over hang the footpath from the Bath Bridge Roundabout to the Three Lamps junction. This is an extremely busy road and very dangerous. Pedestrians are forced onto the cycle way and both paces train footpath and cycle lane are single track. This is an accident waiting to happen. Complaint sent to traffic police as traffic very fast exceeding 30 mph (as identified by speeding sign) and very heavily used.
