Back to all reports

Hedge bordering Marlow Road and Roex Cottage and Grubwood- council have cut-back sides, but the top of this hedge is too high for cutters. Also, it is too high for me to reach from garden of Roex Cottage. Now it is growing out and over the road. The heavy lorries and buses which use this road, often at speed, are bashing into the branches and cause breakages which fall onto the road, then are liable to cause smaller cars problems which is dangerous.

Reported in the Hedge problem category anonymously at 15:38, Wednesday 28 August 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

Overhead and overgrown hedge and trees - heavy lorry vehicles and double decker buses thundering past, often at speed, cause overhead branches to crash down onto road surface. Thereby causing obstructions to traffic, particularly smaller vehicles.
