Pavement width restricted by overgrown hedges/weeds

Reported via desktop in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 20:49, Thu 16 September 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 405340.

The pavement on the railway bridge in Pinchbeck is severely restricted in width due to the overgrown hedges and greenery springing forth beneath and through the safety barriers. There is barely enough width to walk with two dogs without having to walk on the road and if you meet someone else (walking, dog walking or pushing a bike) you have to step into the road on a bend and a blind crest. The lorry traffic is horrendous when you are forced to use the only narrow path available. This route is used by many people but it’s current state is putting me off being able to use it safely. It has always been bad since I moved to the area in March and progressively gotten worth with spring and summer growth and has not been tended to in 6 months.

  • The area which the vegetation is growing from is the liability of Network Rail and therefore the details have been passed onto them to arrange works to have this cut back. Please contact them directly at communities/ contact-us/ if you require any further information. Thank you for reporting this matter.
