Low hanging branch over cycle path

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later
A low hanging tree branch in the East Bound lay-by is so low that it is necessary for cyclists to bend over the handlebars to avoid colliding with the branch. This is particularly difficult to avoid early mornings when HGV s are parked in the lay by and it is not possible to avoid cycling under the branch. This is dangerous and could very easily cause a cyclist to fall if a collision occurred.

The foliage of this tree has continued to grow and it is now impossible to ride under this overhanging branch as it hangs so low. A cyclist could very easily collide with this overhanging branch and receive significant injuries. This is a dangerous hazard. Can the overhanging branch please be removed before someone is injured. Thank you.

HGVs regularly park across the raised pavement which means that when combined with what is a seriously overgrown tree the path is completely obstructed. This morning I had to dismount my bicycle and walk it round such an HGV which had parked across the path next to the branch, putting me in the path of other HGVs manoeuvering through the lay-by. This is a dangerous situation, and needs to be remedied urgently by cutting the trees right back along the lay-by.
