Trees blocking the cycle path

Reported in the Trees category by Alastair Parkes at 13:17, Thu 19 July 2007

Sent to South Oxfordshire District Council 2 minutes later

The trees are overgrown, partially blocking the cycle path and causing reduced visibility. I first reported this fault in May, and again about three weeks ago. Some vegetation has been trimmed back at the station end of the path but the problem of the overgrown trees has not been addressed.

  • I cycle the same route and the trees not only reduce visibility but in parts reduce the usable width of the cycle path to allow only one bike at a time. The overhanging trees mean that you need to duck in 3 or 4 places too. All in all, it's potentially dangerous, considering that HGV's are thundering past only a couple of feet away.

  • Still nothing has been done, they mow the grass nearby once in a while though.

  • Someone has cut the hedge by the railway line, and the grass is mown regularly but the trees that partially block the path are ignored.

  • The grass (which poses no hazard) gets cut regularly, but the trees have not been dealt with.

  • I give up, I'll report it again once the spring growth kicks in and visibility gets even worse.
