Overgrown pathways

Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 16:57, Wednesday

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5978414.

The walking path at the side of the A413 has extremely high foliage. I try to use this path on my commute to work on my bike, to stay off the busy road. But it is now impassable. My wife also can't use the oath as the foliage is too high to run through. It's also a danger as someone could hide in the foliage. Unfortunately in this day and age you have to think about these things.
