Narrowing footpath due to growing floor foliage

Reported in the Pavements category anonymously at 20:05, Mon 30 September 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

Footpath on kennylands road where it meets the new Lea Meadows development path is growing worryingly narrow. Floor fauna/ dirt borders have been creeping over the footpath rendering it almost impassable for buggies and wheelchairs. Please could this be given some TLC and swept back to make it safer given the traffic rarely keep to the 30mph limit on the long straight road. Thank you

  • I have reported this about 18 months ago and nothing has been done and it is becoming worse. The footpath which originally was 5 feet wide is reduced to 2 feet and it is quite frightening when very large lorries or buses go by near you and cars too fast. It is becoming dangerous. You used to be able to walk two abreast but barely room for one now and foliage overhangs in one or two places. This now needs urgent attention.
