FixMyStreet ref: 5178960.

emil rcvd 25.10.23 / 03.11.23 - This was only cut recently and not very good job. This needs attention as dangerous if on bike with hanging branches. They need to be cut right back as it is extremely dark and you cannot see the road. Anything could happen & Over a week now, no reply. It is extremely dark now in the late afternoon and when walking through this path it is extremely dangerous fir us ladies and kids that walk this route. The trees need to be hacked right back so you can see the road and additional lighting. Something serious is going to happen here and i will take this further unless action is taken.
