Large fallen tree on power and telephone lines on old Reading Road at Bow Bridge. Lines in danger of falling when wet and windy weather arrives this weekend. British telecom declined to cut back the tree as its on council property although the road is now unused for traffic. The footpath is unpassable by the foliage and the tress are still alive and growing heavier each day. I fear we will be without power and telecoms if the lines are interrupted which will mean us leaving the property at Mill Lodge as we need power to get water from our well.

Thank you for your report. We have assessed it and found that it does not currently meet the criteria for intervention, as it is on a disused road so will not be fixing at this time.
