Oxford Road Stone Bucks

Reported via mobile in the Hedge problem category anonymously at 20:24, Saturday 15 June 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6112136.

Oxford Road Stone, travelling in the direction of Thame, just after the left turning into Stone Croft, the hedges/trees overhang to such an extent it is difficult to safely walk on the footpath/cycleway. As you pass the hedges and duck under them you are inches away from passing traffic, lorries, buses etc it’s simply dangerous. Wheelchair/push chair users would be in jeopardy of slipping off the kerb into the road. Very hazardous seeing as this is a recognised cycleway too.
