Trees, verges need cutting back.

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 10:54, Wednesday 6 September 2023

Sent to Bromley Council 3 hours, 37 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 4964298.

The trees and bushes are so overgrown that they are hanging into the road (hanging over the yellow lines) on a dangerous bend in the lane. This narrows the pavement at a critical point in the lane. I assumed that this would be fixed before my children went back to school (I worry about the pavement being so narrow, especially on this bend) but unfortunately that’s not the case. Pedestrians are forced to go further into the road. They need cutting back so that the yellow lines are clear and free to walk on (I have always told my children to only walk on the yellow lines, but that’s not possible at the moment). We would be most grateful if these could be cut back as soon as possible. Many thanks Sarah Winter

  • I’m unsure as to why this report has been closed. If this is a duplicate report then the original has still not been rectified and no date has been provided for when it will be resolved. It is still a safety concern for pedestrians (and especially young children walking to and from school, including my own). It is on a sharp bend where the pavement is already limited.

  • Please could you provide an update on this. Still overgrown (more so now) on a dangerous bend, forcing cars and pedestrians to go further into the already narrow lane. Also scratching cars having to let oncoming traffic past.
