Grass cutting Bicker Bar

Reported in the Noxious weeds category anonymously at 14:24, Wednesday 16 September 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 376621.

I have just watched the grass being cut on the A52 between Bicker Bar roundabout and the Swineshead roadbout on the north side of the road. The grass cutter then proceeded to travel around the swineshead roundabout and back to Bicker Bar roundabout leaving the south side of the road uncut. Am I to assume that he is returning to complete the verge grass cutting or does the south side of the road not get cut? This does seem to be a perennial problem on this stretch of the road along with drainage cleaning and road sweeping. I have attached photos showing the level and height of the current grass and weed, which have grown up since the verge was dug up to lay fibre cable presumably with the relevant LCC permissions as the road cannot be considered a safe verge, and one of the side of the road that has been cut.
