Footpath/cyclepath dangerously overgrown

Reported via mobile in the Pavement/footpath issue (NH) category anonymously at 11:34, Thu 11 August 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3746802.

The pathway which starts underneath Avonmouth bridge on lower high Street and goes to british bakeries area is virtually completely overgrown with brambles stingers etc.A lot of people use this pathway so they don't have to battle with the hgvs and cars etc to get into the industrial estate.I cycle through there every day but can't at night time on way home due to it being to overgrown and obviously can't see all branches,brambles at face height on bike even with lights on.Please could it be cut back more than once a year!!!!
