Bushes in the central reservation are overgrown and blocking pedestrains and motorist view

Reported via desktop in the Pavements/footpaths category anonymously at 12:05, Monday 5 February 2024

Sent to Leicester City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5533790.

The central reservation is totally overgrown with self set Ash trees and other bushes. Whilst at the moment there are no leaves on these last summer they totally blocked the view for anyone trying to cross at the pedestrian crossing point. They also block the road signs for motorists and block motorists view of crossing pedestrians. I was advised when I reported this last year that the bushes etc would be cut back in the autumn. This has not happened and this will become a danger again once they come into leaf. This has now been an issue for over a year and is a terrible accident waiting to happen because of the view being so restricted by the overgrown plants along this entire section.

  • Still no update from the council. I am expecting that they will wait until these bushes are in leaf and then will then say they cannot prune them due to nesting birds.....again. This will be 2 years since I first reported this.
