    Thanks for the work undertaken clearing the basal growth. Unfortunately, only 2/3rds of the work was completed as can be seen from the attached. The remaining growth still creates a hazard, especially for spotting cyclists approaching the junction southbound on London Road.

    Hopefully a quick fix and no extra costs!!
