Root Heave

Reported in the Pavements category anonymously at 10:10, Sunday 7 June 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2145222.

1. Root Heave from kerbside trees is causing a dangerous Dangerous Tripping Hazard outside various properties, especially No's. 56/8 and 70. With the trees now in full leaf, even more dangerous at night. The hazards hves been there for many months and are getting worse. Parks Department have been told on numerous occasions, but don't seem to have a solution.

2. The road surface in Stapleton Road is cracking and is beginning to break up in places. Something will need to be done before next winter.

  • One Root Heave patch has been completed. However, the second one alongside it wasn't touched by Council operatives. Because, I was told that "It wasn't on the job sheet", so we can't do it!. This Birch tree is constant source of annoyance, because it is dirty all year round. If it is not the leaves dropping, it is either twigs or pealing bark. This tree attracts Pigeons, which leave there droppings and mess outside our house.
