Trees blocking the cycle path

Reported in the Trees category by Alastair Parkes at 13:12, Thu 19 July 2007

Sent to Vale of White Horse District Council 3 minutes later

The pavement cycle path is half blocked by trees, forcing cyclists close to the edge of the path and so close to fast-moving traffic. I first reported this fault in May, and again about three weeks ago. Some of the grass has been trimmed and a few of the worst overhanging branches have been removed, but the main bulk of the trees blocking the path remain.

  • A lot of work has been done on the worst section, but the trees still block the path in a couple of places.

  • Nothing has been done since my last post. In two places trees narrow the path, pushing cyclists to the egde of the path and so within inches of traffic on a 60 mph road.

  • There are still sections where the trees partially obscure the path but it's obvious that the council aren't going to do anything as they were told about it more than 6 months ago. I'll just have to report it again when the spring growth starts to make the path even more dangerous.
