Pathway from Northern Heights to Wilfrids Wood Close on Blind Lane

Reported via desktop in the Overhanging branch/tree category anonymously at 10:43, Fri 23 June 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4707713.

A Buckinghamshire Highways issue NOT the PC (I have had this confirmation already) This is a critical pathway used by pedestrians and most importantly school children every day. The pathway is becoming overgrown by trees and foliage. One needs to risk moving closer to the edge or even step in to the road to walk up and down. It is an accident waiting to happen on this busy road and bus route. Whilst the speed limit is 30 mph as a resident of Blind Lane I can tell you the speed of most vehicles is in excess of 30 mph. Particularly during school runs and a.m. and p.m. commuter times. There will be an accident between a vehicle and pedestrian soon!
