The whole path down the approach road next to the green railway fence is clogged with overgrowth (thorn bushes, leaves and dirt) making the path narrow at the best of times let alone when taking my little one for a walk in our buggy as you can see from the picture. It is like this and worse in other places from the bath road all the way up to Taplow Train station. It needs to be cleared to make return the path to its full width as pushing a buggy along the curb next to a road where people are travelling 40 MPH is not acceptable.
