Unkempt state of pavement verges on east pavement between Wootton Road roundabout and Mons Way

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later
The pavement kerb on the east side of Copenhagen Drive from the Wootton Road roundabout (WRR) to Mons Way is infested with unsightly weeds and even two (now quite large) trees - one a budlia (c.3'-0"), the other unknown (c.4'-0"). For the unwary driver, the tree in the first photo above could obscure his/her vision of oncoming vehicles from WRR , leading to a potential RTA at the Mons Way junction. Could something please be done to remove all this growth and to take whatever measures are necessary to stop them growing again?
Thank you for your report, we are now investigating this issue and an update will be posted as soon as possible.
State changed to: Investigating

The two trees were removed, although I'm not aware if it was the council or some other member of the public seeing the potential hazard which at least one of them posed. However, all of the other weeds on the stretch between Wootton Road roundabout and Mons Way remain in situ, STILL presenting an eyesore to all and sundry, be they pedestrians, cyclists or motorists - makes the area look positively uncared for.
