The pavement of the subway is considerably reduced in width by brambles and weds growing through railings onto the path.

Reported via desktop in the Damage - general (Trees) category anonymously at 16:54, Thursday 10 February 2022

Sent to TfL 15 hours, 47 minutes later. TfL ref: FMS3303650.

The path under this overgrowth will probably deteriorate if weeds are left and brambles grow.
