Overgrown vegetation around bridge over the railway

As per last Network Rail visual exam, vegetation is overgrowing all around the bridge over the railway in Station Road, particularly on parapets and wingwalls. This is preventing a fully visual examination of the structure and roots might damage the structure at long term. Could you please remove overgrown vegetation and kill roots to prevent regrowth?
The parapet needs attention too. Could you please confirm you are regularly inspecting the structure and whether parapet repairs are planned in the future?
