Overgrown trees on footpath

Reported via mobile in the Growth at the bottom of trees/regrowth category anonymously at 08:17, Sat 31 July 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2903712.

Hi I reported a problem and this is the reference number ref: 2755915. You have informed me the work is completed and I respectfully disagree. A large portion of the path has not been cleared, it runs from the Europol supermarket to the turning for Smiths Motors. There is also a short section, just after the railway bridge, on the same side as the railway lines, which has overhanging brambles. Whilst I appreciate the work that has been carried out, it makes my daily commute much easier, it will be even better once the whole stretch has been cleared. Much of this foot path has no lighting, which makes it very dangerous, especially with so much overgrowth. Thank you
