Path blocked by overgrown verge

Reported via desktop in the Pavements category anonymously at 15:10, Wednesday 23 August 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

The verge is completely overgrown and in some places fully covering the footpath forcing pedestrians to walk in the road, given the speed some vehicles travel along here as it is just outside the 30mph section this is incredibly dangerous.

Council ref: ENQ23972953

  • We have cut this back ourselves a bit as with the traffic works also being completed on the same stretch of round this was incredibly unsafe - this path has a high volume of footfall from Bremont Watch Company. Please can we get an update as to what is being done to address this?
