Overgrown basal growth of tree

Reported via Android in the Low hanging branches category by Barbara Stryjak at 17:35, Tuesday 12 October 2021

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3058529.

This growth is now overhanging half of the cycle path. I had to come off the cycle path to allow a cyclist pass who was going in the opposite direction.

  • Can you please update me on when this will be done? It is now almost 3 weeks since I reported this problem. You stated that it could take up to 28 days but it is dangerous for cyclists and the problems should be tackled within days of the report being submitted.

  • This was the same response when the incident was reported last year. No action was taken then and I require a timeline on when this will be addressed. And sooner than 28 days please
