Trees and branches growing over road

Reported via mobile in the Trees category anonymously at 08:49, Sunday 28 March 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Trees have been allowed to overgrow the road resulting in many dangerous branches causing cyclists to have to veer far into the road and the motorists. There is no safe way to cycle along without being in the path of motorists. The gutters have also been neglected to the point that it is impossible to drive or cycle near the edge of the road. Half a metre of road has been lost to weeds and debris for a long stretch. The duty of care to cyclists and motorists is not being met.
