Over grown trees and hedges

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 14:41, Tuesday 15 September 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Overgrown trees and bushes on west minister way restricting pavement and visibility. Tree by crossing is growing in front of the crossing light & starting to obscure for drivers approaching from A34 slip road. Path ways around the crossing are over grown so cannot cross pedestrians safely (have to walk in the road). Going to be a bigger issues in winter.

  • I have visited the site pinpointed on the map, I assume, you are referring to the section of trees stretching from opposite 178 to opposite 198 Westminster Way, see photos.

  • Specifically the side without the bus stop (both both really). It’s very busy at school times and we have frequent near misses with adults and children. Anything to improve visibility for drivers and pedestrians is much appreciated. (The warning sign of the crossing has been knocked out of place again further up west minister way. My husband usually pushed it back, I tried this time and wanted tall enough. Can the tree trimmers ensure it is also visible?)

  • Thank you for your report. This section of overgrown trees, obstructing the footway and carriageway at this site, has been cut back. I am therefore closing this report.
