Overgrown hedging

Reported via mobile in the Low hanging branches category anonymously at 15:54, Wed 22 September 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3018456.

Please see below trail, this was first reported in May and TFL confirmed action would be taken in June. We are now approaching October and nothing has been done. It is now extremely dangerous to pass safely on this very busy, fast flowing road:

Reference 2642328 The overgrown hedging is blocking the pavement, so I can no longer safely pass with my pram, meaning I have to push my baby in the road on this bush corner.

State changed to: In progress Posted by TfL at 11:01, Tuesday 18 May 2021 This problem was first reported to Bromley Council in March and subsequently to you in May, as the Croydon Road (A232) is a Red Route. The overhanging hedge is now almost totally blocking the pavement and as it is on a blind bend facing the oncoming traffic, it is extremely dangerous to walk into the road. Could something be done about it as a matter of urgency before a pedestrian is injured or worse.
